Hello all. Need some advice from whose with experience. I'm currently working in a customer service administration role. This is leading nowhere so I feel I need a change in career.
So I've come across a few adds for gas training. There are quite a few training centres about that offer gas electrical training. The course being 16 weeks. Few weeks class based training. A few weeks with a experienced gas safe registered engineer to complete a portfolio of work. A week back at in class room and then tests. If passed you can apply to be put on the gas safe register. All this will cost around 4-5k.
Question is should I do this course. Does It actually lead to a job or would More training be required. For example volunteer work with a gas worker for a few months to gain futher experience.
Any one done this course? Any gas engineers insight would be great. Those who have changed careers, what did you do?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
