Learn the essentials and start your new career as a gas fitter!

Essential Gas Course

Over the years, we have delivered numerous gas engineer courses at every level, but we have often seen candidates struggle to earn the more advanced gas qualifications because they don’t have the basic knowledge to build upon.

Access Training’s Gas Essentials course is a managed learning programme that’s designed for absolute beginners, helping them to become confident gas fitters in a relatively short time.

BlurWho Is This Course For

Who is this course for?

Our Gas Essentials course is suitable for absolute beginners with no prior gas experience whatsoever, but we also welcome more experienced learners who need to refresh their skills and expertise.

In order to receive your qualification at the end of the Essential Gas Course, you’ll need a work placement that will allow you to complete a portfolio of gas work. For this reason, this programme is ideal for candidates who – for instance – already work within a plumbing company that will be able to provide suitable jobs.
