Gas Pipework Skills Courses

Gas Pipework Skills

The gas pipework skills course is an essential course for anyone without plumbing qualifications who are keen to learn safe and industry regulated gas pipework knowledge and methods. Equally, it is a very useful course for practising plumbers who are working on existing or future plumbing projects and are especially keen to become highly competent in all aspects of gas pipework.

The gas pipework skills course is mainly practical, providing essential and highly comprehensive skills that will enable you to work safely and competently on copper and steel pipes. For on-site training, you will be required to wear suitable clothing and protective footwear (preferably steel toed), which is compulsory.

Having recognised training and qualifications is a must to achieve your dream career of becoming a professional plumber. The gas pipework skills course is a carefully planned, industry wide and recognised course that will progress your plumbing career even further, especially if taken in conjunction with plans to become a Gas Safe engineer and further the viability of getting a gas portfolio placement.

Who is the gas pipework skills course aimed at?

The gas pipework skills course is for those with limited hands-on experience with gas pipe works and/or do not have plumbing qualifications. It is also a suitable course for qualified plumbers who have not done many pipework projects and would benefit greatly from hands-on training working with copper and steel pipe.
