Domestic Gas Course – Overview:

If you want to learn about gas work and get started on the path to working as a domestic gas engineer, the Gas Essentials course from Access Training Academies will suit you perfectly. This domestic gas course covers all the basics of gas work, making it ideal for candidates with no prior experience of gas work.

Over the years, we have delivered numerous gas courses at every level, but we have often seen candidates struggle to achieve the more advanced qualifications because they don’t have the basic knowledge required to fully comprehend what they are being taught. This spurred us on to create our own ‘essential’ gas course; the aim of this programme is to provide the right level of training for absolute beginners, helping them to become qualified, confident gas engineers.

If you choose to enrol on this domestic gas course, you will learn how to install, service and maintain appliances including the following:
  • Central heating boilers
  • Cookers
  • Gas fires
  • Water heaters
