There is just one week to go until the Installers First ‘Gas Engineer Training & Skills Assembly’. The programme is set to deliver an opportunity for all those with an interest in the training and skills of Gas Engineers to; take a comprehensive review of all the issues and the current activity which aims to address them, and hopefully, then identify how the industry can work holistically for the benefit of all.
Laurah Hutchinson-Strain, Head of Media, Installers First said: “The training and skills of Gas Engineers is a complex area of review for a complex job. Our event will provide a chance for the industry to learn about each of the different activities across the board and how, by working together we could potentially benefit the anticipated outcomes of each initiative.
“In addition to hearing from those who set the standards, we want to offer Gas Engineers the chance to have their say. So often we hear conversations or see tweets about ‘fast trackers’, lack of training for apprentices, poor standards or support for the next generation.
“Making sure that the review of Gas Engineer Training and Skills is fit for purpose means that installers doing the job, today, must be involved. Which is why our event will feature an installer panel, made up of current Gas Safe registered installers who can provide constructive feedback and a valuable insight.
“It’s really crucial that we have good representation from installers. This is a great chance to meet with the people who design the training courses, standards and processes and feedback about real life experiences.”
The event is sponsored by Sentinel Performance Solutions Ltd and is open to installers registered with Installers First. If you are not yet registered, visit www.installersfirst.co.uk today!
