Gas Managed Learning Programme (MLP) Courses for Birmingham & the West Midlands

Embarking on a gas-managed learning programme (mlp) is the first step to becoming a certified gas engineer and combines classroom-based learning and practical assessment.

Elite Training & Assessment offers this Gas Foundation training programme to new entrants, which has been designed to address the needs of the gas industry and is set out in IGEM/IG/1 “Standards of Training in Gas Work and the Gas Training Specification”.

The curriculum is structured to ensure adequate learning is undertaken in a classroom environment first to understand the key principles. Then the trainee will be required to collect on-site evidence at a later stage. We welcome applications from far and wide, from school leavers to mid-lifers wanting to change direction in their careers.
