Gas Engineer Training

Take advantage of a lucrative and rewarding industry

A career as a gas engineer is long-term and rewarding

LCL Awards Approved Centre

Gas is UK’s fuel of choice – there are 23.2 million gas customers and over two million domestic gas boilers installed every year, not to mention new fires and cookers.

When you also take into account all the servicing and repair work which takes place on existing appliances there is certainly no shortage of work for suitably trained gas engineers.

And, the gas sector is one with an eye to the future – millions of pounds are invested to continually move the industry forward. Thanks to more efficient boilers and exciting new trials mixing hydrogen with natural gas, a career as a gas engineer is long-term and rewarding.

Viva offers a range of gas courses, for existing Gas Safe Registered engineers looking to renew their qualifications and new entrants who are starting from scratch or expanding on transferable skills and experience. We also provide gas training for the building managers responsible for gas safety.

Training is delivered by British Gas installers, in a relaxed environment.

Our centre is purpose-built, featuring the latest technology and we’re passionate about helping businesses succeed. Viva’s founder, Richard Firth, has grown his own highly successful heating business so we know what it takes to make it as a gas installer.
