Gas engineering apprenticeship

Gas engineering apprenticeship involves the safe installation, commission, decommission and the ongoing service and repair of gas appliances in either a domestic or non-domestic setting.

As a Gas Engineering apprentice, the appliances you will work on could include, but are not limited to, central heating boilers, unvented hot water storage, ducted air heaters, cookers, space heaters, meters, alternative fuel, boosters, testing and purging for industrial pipework.

You will learn how installations and appliances work, how to provide energy efficiency advice and how to ensure customer service excellence at all times. Roles in gas engineering are physical in nature, and you may find yourself lifting and moving equipment, working at heights and working in confined spaces, all the time keeping to strict health & safety requirements.

Individual employers will set the selection criteria for their apprenticeship and will include a recognised background check, equivalent to Criminal Record Bureau /Disclosure and Barring Service (CRB/DBS). All gas engineers must be registered on the Gas Safe® Register for each appliance that they are competent to undertake work on.

On successful completion of your apprenticeship, you’ll be eligible to join the Institution of Gas Engineers & Managers (IGEM) as an Engineering Technician (EngTech).
