Course Overview

As part of this course, professionals from related industries and candidates new to our industry will be spending 3 months at our training centre acquiring the knowledge and practical skills required to become a highly skilled Gas Safe registered engineer. You will also be spending 3 months on site either at a work placement or at your job, applying everything you have learned at the training centre and writing your portfolio.

Taught by our exceptional and experienced trainers, we will make sure you are well prepared and setup for success for your first ACS assessment. By the end of the course you will be a competent and skilled gas engineer with a bright future ahead! All course materials required will be handed out to you in the beginning of the course.

Training & Assessment

Here at, we strive to provide the highest possible quality of services. Our trainers have more than 20 years of combined work experience at some of the most successful companies our industry. Candidates work with new and state-of-the-art equipment at our training establishment, while learning from experienced engineers at their work placements. This allows us to send candidates off into the industry both competent and setup for success.

Another way we ensure the quality of our services is through the separation of training and assessment. Separating the training from the assessment and certification process, we put our candidates and our industries interests first and ensure their professional development. As of yet, it is only possible to offer a training-only system for our MLP course. However, we are taking every step possible to move ourselves and our industry in this direction.

Professional Prospects

With our MLP course you will train to become a competent Gas Safe registered Engineer, gaining valuable knowledge and skills, ensuring you will leave our training centre a highly sought-after professional that can expect an annual salary upwards of £30,000 depending on experience and location.
