Gas Engineers specialise in the installation and repair of gas appliances including central heating boilers and systems, cookers, fires and water heaters. The work is safety-critical and you will need to learn how to implement statutory requirements such as the gas safety regulations.

At Leeds College of Building we offer a gas apprenticeship which will take 3 years to complete.

Apprenticeship salaries are around £15,000 a year.

Qualified Gas Engineers can earn between £25,000 and £30,000 a year.
