Apprentices develop skills, knowledge and behaviours set out in the Gas Engineering Operative Standard.
Apprentices will complete:
Training Stage 1 – Safe working and carrying out health and safety practices in gas utilisation as well as building services and structures.
Training Stage 2 – Written or practical assignments and knowledge assessments.
Training Stage 3 – A work log of practical activities, skills and competencies, and a practical observation of work activity in terms of quality and behaviour.
Apprentices must legally achieve Gas Safe® registration as they need to prove competence in using appliances that contain Natural Gas or Liquid Petroleum.
- A practical assessment known as a ‘competency test’ after achieving Gas Safe® registration.
- Apprentices must show core and specific skills, knowledge and behaviours in a real world environment.
- In the last three months of the apprenticeship, a technical expert will review the apprentice’s portfolio and undertake a summative assessment of competence against the skills, knowledge and behaviours.
Completing the work log and assessments lead to eligibility for Gas Safe® registration.
A gas engineer installs, commissions, decommissions, services and repairs gas appliances in a domestic setting.

They typically work on appliances such as central heating boilers, unvented hot water storage, ducted air heaters, cookers and space heaters. The role is physical and may involve lifting and moving equipment, working at heights and in confined spaces.
