WHY BECOME A HEATING AND RENEWABLES ENGINEER??

Learning a trade means learning a skill for life. The trades industry is booming due to a rising population and private housing rental market. There has never been a better time to become a gas engineer.

High Earning Potential

Gas engineers could see a salary closer to £50,000 a year. Of course, if you run your own business – a serious prospect for many in the gas trade – these figures could significantly increase.

Be Your
Own Boss

Your working hours will depend on what kind of job you take after qualifying. Working for yourself will give you the freedom to take on work when and where you want to.

Start a New Challenge

Being a Heating Engineer is a challenging job, both mentally and physically. Being successful requires mental agility and the ability to solve problems, and you will have to apply your expertise to several different scenarios and projects.

No Two Days
Are The Same

Not only will the nature of your job vary, but so will your location and you won’t be one of those people who sit in the same chair in the same office day in, day out.

Thanks, especially to Waheed, Leanne, Kieron, Shaun & Mike. I know, I have forgotten few names, but really, thanks... everyone. You all go above and beyond the job responsibility to teach the tricks of the trade that normally would have taken years to master. The course was above and beyond my expectations.

Great experience with these guys. All staff had plenty of time to answer your queries, however trivial. Brian and Mike were especially good in keeping you calm under pressure. I’ll be back in 5 years for my reassessment and possible renewable courses. Highly recommended. 👍
