At FlixTAC we have experience tailoring and delivering specific courses to meet individual requirements. E.G. your company specific guidelines delivered to your staff to ensure they are trained accordingly and are working safe. We may even be prepared to travel to your site(s) with our learning aids to deliver training and assessments in your workplace environment.
Most individuals will study their chosen trade whilst at sixth-form college and hold their trade qualification(s) from an early age. For the others amongst you who are looking to re-train there is an alternative route to gain your accreditation that we can offer.
The routes candidates were permitted to take to gain entry into the gas industry were permanently changed as of October 1st 2018. As such, the only option available for new entrants who wish to train and work as gas engineers is via a Managed Learning Program or 'MLP'. The MLP mirrors the previous standard apprenticeship route and offers a far broader range of learning compared to any 'fast-track' routes that have now been deleted.
Candidates will be required to source an exisiting qualified gas engineer who can mentor them throughout this process. On-site training and experience is key to the learning process, and works in-hand with the training you will receive from us at our training centre in Scunthorpe. Most of the practical learning you will receive will be directly from your currently qualified engineer/mentor, though there are many varied tutor-led training days at Flixtac (including distance learning methods) to cover all required theory and practical elements.
During the MLP, candidates will build a portfolio of evidence covering various essential work modules. The portfolio details the work they have carried out on site accompanied by photographic evidence where possible. Once the portfolio is completed, and we are satisfied that no further training from ourselves is required, dates are arranged for the candidate to attend their gas diploma exams. Following successful completion of the gas diploma exams, the candidate is then eligible to take the ACS assessments.
Once the ACS assessments have been completed successfully, the candidate (now a fully qualified UK Domestic Gas Engineer!) will then be eligible to apply for Gas Safe Registration (following receipt of their new certificate of competence sent from our awarding body).
Upon successful completion of our MLP you would hold a level 3 nationally recognised qualification that would enable you to:
The timescales to complete the Flixtac Managed Learning Programme can and will differ based on each potential Engineer's experience and self-commitment. We have structured programs in place however, so please be in touch to discuss what options are available to you.
Please note that at Flixtac we offer any ongoing technical support and/or guidance that you may need following your course with us. We understand the value of aftercare and how beneficial it is to gain some reassurance, or to simply enforce your decision on the job, when you're new to a trade.
