Following completion of the training candidates gain practical ‘on the job' experience with a work placement, lasting approximately 8 weeks. This will allow candidates to develop a portfolio of experience, during which time they will receive constant support from their trainer.

Get Training is one of the only training providers in the country who assist candidates to source work placements with Gas Safe registered companies.

There is huge demand for qualified central heating engineers in the UK. To change career to a heating engineer with our specially developed Get to Gas course is quick and leaves candidates equipped with the skills and qualifications they require to pursue a rewarding career both in terms of income and satisfaction. College courses are often oversubscribed or unsuited, but we have the experience and facilities to make learning an enjoyable process, with all the resources and advice you need in one place.

Get to Gas is unique to Get Training, no other training provider in the country offers the same course. Our qualifications are fully accredited and Gas Safe approved leading directly to completion of ACS CCN1 Core Domestic Gas Safety which covers all aspects of gas safety legislation and enables candidates to gain Gas Safe status.

Our fast track Get to Gas course is suitable for anyone wishing to embark on a financially rewarding career as a qualified heating engineer. Whether you have no experience at all and want to start from scratch, or have basic plumbing ability you want to develop, our training will equip you with the necessary skills required to undertake gas work on-site. Successful candidates can register with Gas Safe regardless of whether they go on to full time employment or work self employed after qualifying. This is a fantastic option for those looking for a career change as the training is completed in a relatively short space of time and demand for qualified heating engineers is high.

If you're looking for a recognised qualification and the core skills required to be a competent and knowledgeable heating engineer then come to Get Training.

With our friendly team of experienced staff and established and accredited courses the only question you'll need to ask is why you didn't come to us sooner!

Our Guarantee

In the unlikely event you do not pass ACS CCN1 first time after completing Get to Gas, we will allow you to re-sit free of charge next time!

What our candidates really think...

  • I was looking to do my gas qualification for a number of years and found myself with time on my hands. I did a lot of investigating on the internet and contacted numerous companies before choosing Get Training. Get Training’s Training Advisor arranged my start time and explained the training schedule, arranged accommodation and managed to arrange a placement for me on the Isle Of Wight where I live.

    All Get Training staff are very professional, my trainer has been working in the gas industry for over 40 years and is a ‘mind full of knowledge’, there is nothing he doesn’t know about gas.

    The best part of the training is the way things are explained to you. If you are unsure it is explained again until you understand, and with regular assessments every week the knowledge becomes imprinted in your mind.

    Get Training are a thoroughly professional outfit who ease you through the learning process. Practical tasks are carried out in the workshop, gaining experience in all matters of gas.

    I am well on my way to a good career in gas, having passed my exams and assessments. I am now Gas Safe registered and owe it to all my eagerness to learn and the dedication of all Get Training staff. Thank you Get Training!
