How To Become A Gas Engineer
Becoming a qualified gas engineer via a modern adult apprenticeship is not as difficult as you may think with training, on-site work experience, ACS qualifications all combining to provide you with a solid platform from which to launch a new career as a qualified Gas Safe Registered Engineer.
A career as a qualified gas engineer is extremely rewarding. It is common knowledge that there is a shortage of Registered Gas Installers in the UK. As a result, this shortage drives demand and earning potential for those people that hold ACS Qualifications.
Traditionally the route into this exciting industry was to follow an apprenticeship scheme as soon as you left school. However at 16 years of age most of us still had dreams of playing for our local football team as opposed to taking a trade. With limited places available in colleges and the much published difficulty in getting apprenticeships, many people believe that the opportunity has passed them by. This is no longer the case. At Options Skills we have developed a unique Adult Apprenticeship to help you become a gas engineer.
Our Unique Adult Apprenticeship has been designed to help people fulfil their dream of becoming a gas engineer. The programme combines:
