Both gas engineers and plumbers are an essential part of our society today. Carrying out installations and maintenance on systems within our homes and offices which we use every day. The engineers doing this work require the correct training and qualifications to ensure that the systems are maintained to a good condition and to keep themselves and others safe. It is important for these engineers to get the initial qualifications and to stay on top of regular reassessments.

Safety first

There are many risks when working in the gas and plumbing industries. Gas can be very dangerous without proper training – there could be a risk of gas leaks, carbon monoxide poisoning and even explosions. Plumbing can have risks when it comes to leaks and electrical equipment. Proper training is necessary to teach engineers how to identify and reduce any potential risks. Following industry standards and safety protocols are important to keep the engineer and customers safe.  

Compliance and regulations

The trade industries are heavily regulated to ensure the safety of the public and engineers. Certified training courses will cover any regulations and industry standards that need to be followed when carrying out any gas and plumbing work. Compliance to these regulations is a legal requirement and will ensure the integrity of the work being done.

Quality workmanship

Having professional training will ensure that any work is done to a high standard and can provide the skills necessary to perform any tasks correctly the first time. This would ensure fewer call-backs to fix any issues, reduced task time and help customer satisfaction. It would also reduce the risk of building a negative reputation with customers. Quality workmanship will build trust and encourage a good reputation within the industry and with customers.

Industry changes

The trade industry is always evolving and changing with new technologies and techniques, so it is important to stay up to date. Ongoing professional development can help professionals with the knowledge to embrace any advancements and help them stay as experts within their field, maintaining high quality work.

Career growth

Staying up to date with any relevant training can open doors to a wide range of career opportunities. Ongoing professional development allows engineers to stay competitive within the industry and certified technicians are currently in high demand.

Customer trust

Fully trained engineers will always be needed, from boiler servicing to keeping home heating systems working and safe. Customers rely on technicians to keep their homes running, so building trust is important for creating long-term relationships and repeat business. Being fully qualified and following safety regulations enhances the engineer’s credibility and helps the customer feel confident in who they have chosen to complete the work.
