NEW ENTRANTS – GAS DIPLOMA
Are you looking for a new Career? Do you want to broaden your current skills? Or have you just left school and want to join the industry? No matter what your position, the Gas Diploma could be just what you are looking for!!!
Specifically designed for new entrants with no experience as well as candidates who have some experience either in plumbing or who have been working with qualified engineers, the Gas Diploma is an in-depth course which offers you theory and practical training within the centre, and then full training and assessing at the end of the course in order to sit and obtain your ACS qualifications.
Here at Anglia Heating Training, we are authorised and certificated by Cert~ain Certification Ltd, and are also an approved IGEM centre for the Gas Diploma course.
We are certificated for Gas Diploma courses in DOMESTIC, COMMERCIAL, COMMERCIAL CATERING, COMMERCIAL LPG, LPG and BOATS, the course content has been revised and written by our very knowledgeable and experienced trainers. Which ever route you wish to go down, there is a Gas Diploma course that will get you where you want to go!!
The Diploma is an in-depth course and requires a lot of input from the candidates as well as the input received from the trainers. We will give you 100% dedication to teaching and training, and each candidate will need to give 100% to learning. It is a life changing course, and at the end, a very rewarding one, as you will become a qualified Gas Engineer in your chosen area. As well as in centre training (both theory and practical) each candidate will be required to produce a Portfolio of evidence of work carried out alongside a qualified Gas Safe Registered engineer. It is advisable to find a mentor prior to starting the course so when you have finished the incentre training you are right ready to start building your portfolio of evidence!
We are very aware that a lot of candidates are trying to retrain whilst earning a living, and also appreciate how much knowledge people can take in over a short space of time, so we have designed the way we run our courses to hopefully cater for all scenarios. The incentre training takes place for 3 consecutive days every month, for 7 consecutive months. This will cover theory and practical training. Ongoing papers are sat to help us check that all candidates on the course are retaining the information and highlight any areas where more training may be required. At the end of month 7 we give each candidate a pre set portfolio ready for obtaining practical evidence with a Gas safe registered engineer. We will explain and show you how we wish the portfolio to be set out, and all candidates can view previous completed portfolios so they can see what kind of work is required to produce a great portfolio with a high quality of knowledge showing through.
Once the Portfolio is completed and signed off, we will ensure all papers sat over the 7 months are complete, and on passing these your Gas Diploma certificate will be applied for and then issued by CCL, and you will be ready to sit your ACS training and assessing in order to gain your ACS Gas Certification.
The full cost of our course is £5225.00 + vat (this is based on Domestic) and this price covers everything from start to finish. All required theory and practical training, Health & Safety documents, training manuals, stationary, folders, pre set portfolio, unlimited help and advice AND your ACS training, Assessing and Certification. There are no hidden fees, one price covers everything you need from the first day you start until those ACS Certificates land on your door mat!!
It is a daunting amount but is well worth it as a Gas Diploma and then ACS qualification in one field, can open up a lot of opportunity to grow and expand your qualifications within a very large industry. To assist with the course cost we can also offer a payment plan where you can pay a deposit and then monthly instalments to spread the cost.
A £250 administration fee will be retained to cover costs of a registration should it be cancelled by the candidate prior to the start date.
We welcome all potential candidates looking at joining a Gas Diploma course, to come to the centre and have a look around, meet the staff and have a cuppa and a chat with the trainers to ensure it is the right course for you, and hopefully if it is, you will like the look of our centre, and the training facilities we have to offer. New courses start every 3 months, and prior to the start we will have some previous candidates come in to speak to you all one evening to give you a full insight into the course, and having been through the course themselves, they are willing to answer any questions you may have or wish to ask.
To arrange a visit or to obtain any further information, please contact our office and we will be happy to help.
I started my MLP in November 2020 knowing very little about gas but did have an understanding of general plumbing and heating systems although this not being my primary area of employment.
During the 7 months the training provided far exceeded my expectations, the workshop provided a fantastic environment to learn coupled with excellent tuition from the team at AHT.
Classroom based theory was always supplemented by referring situations to real environments that bring subjects to life and creating a good basis for asking further questions on the subjects being reviewed.
Without doubt the course format of guided learning over the 7 month period is a great way to learn over a more condensed period in my view as it enabled me to read up on the subjects between monthly visits and then ask questions to improve my overall knowledge.
By October 2021 I had both completed my onsite portfolio and passed my ACS, this a true testament that the MLP programme is achievable at Anglia Heating Training!
This really is the best thing I have undertaken made all the better by the staff at Anglia Heating Training.
Testimonial By Gareth Keeble 20/10/2021
“I would like to say a huge thank you and to acknowledge everyone at Anglia Heating Training for all their amazing support and brilliant teaching since I began my Domestic Gas MLP course in June of 2021.
I truly believe that I could not have transitioned into my new career as a domestic gas engineer with any other training provider.
Having spent 22 years as a fashion photographer and having never even picked up a screwdriver, or put together self assembly furniture, let alone having any kind of plumbing or heating background; I certainly presented a challenge to the team at AHT!
Whereas other training providers told me to not even bother as it would be impossible, the team at Anglian Heating Training picked up on my motivation and determination very quickly and embraced the challenge of getting me to the point where I could not only pass my ACS, but also work to the highest standards once graduated and working in the industry.
In all dealings, whether it be with the trainers/assessors or the front office team, I’ve only ever been met with a superb willingness to go the extra mile and to do everything in their power to ensure that I succeeded and felt supported throughout my entire journey.
It’s a testament to the hard work and level of excellence that the whole team bring to every day, that their reputation within the industry is such that I was effectively head hunted and offered a job within 48hrs of passing my ACS! This demonstrates the standards to which Anglia Heating Training are known to operate and the quality of engineers they produce.
For me; they are without doubt the premier training provider in the UK and in my opinion should be the only destination for anyone looking to career change from a completely different background.”
