Yes - the Managed Learning Programme is for candidates looking to get into the gas industry. You could become a gas engineer in 18 weeks.
The Managed Learning Programme (MLP) was designed and implemented to replace the old APL, which was a quick way into the gas industry, but this led to inadequately trained engineers working on gas appliances.
The MLP incorporates a much more in-depth training programme which covers health and safety, as well as all of the relevant gas modules.
The training programme is 4 – 5 weeks at our centre where you will be taught by our knowledgeable trainers. You will then be required to complete a portfolio with a Gas Safe Registered engineer.
As part of the MLP, you are required to complete a portfolio. This portfolio is completed at on site under the direct supervision of a Gas Safe Registered engineer. The Energy Academy will provide you with the Logic Certification portfolio that gives you the format of how your reports should be presented.
You are required to provide evidence and write up reports of jobs that you have completed. This evidence can include witness statements and photographs that will be signed off by the supervising engineer.
If you are unable to secure a supervised work placement, then we at the Energy Academy will help you as we have connections with local businesses that maybe able to assist us by offering you a placement. Please note that there maybe an additional charge for this placement. This would be assessed on an individual basis.
