Why Train With CTSGroup
There is good reason to train with CTSGroup. We are contacted daily by students who have invested their money into training programs that result in a wealth of road blocks. These include;
Having to secure your own work placement or very long delays in getting hands on training
Sub-Standard Portfolio Evidence
Provider going out of business
Finding that you have to pay more than you expected
Turned away from interviews after graduating due to having no solo experience, employer history, or gas safe profile
These are just some of the nightmares gas trainees face. The reason for this is the lack of apprenticeships in the gas industry. As an alternative the industry approved the 'Managed Learning program'. The problem is the program is intended to be managed by your gas employer and is a replacement to the apprenticeship. If you are joining a managed learning program without the employer then your training will likely result in nothing more than paperwork certificates. Gaining work in the gas industry requires a clean incident free history, professional profile, employer references and most of all post graduation 'Solo Experience', none of which are gained without a sponsoring employer to provide these. If you want to work for a well known company then why not complete your training with one.
Employer Sponsorship is the Solution
We have been providing a bridge to close the gap from training to employment / self employment for our sponsored gas trainees, by managing the complete training program as the students' effective employer from inception to your place on the gas register.
As a registered employer of gas engineers we are able to provide the key skills training, site evaluation and entry to the gas register as a fully licenced engineer able to work and commence a period of post training induction under our gas registration. This allows our students to join the gas industry from within a gas registered business, gain solo experience under our kick start program, and make their way proficiently in the gas industry.
Safety and Security
CTSGroup have been providing gas business services throughout the UK and parts of Europe Since the 1990's. We know the industry very well, and we also know the training providers, certification bodies, and industry requirements. We ensure our students receive the best possible training, and because we are not tied to any particular certification body or provider we can offer the best possible training solution to meet our trainees individual requirements.
We are also able to extend our own business discounts at the centres and colleges used by our own engineers over the years which means you get all the benefits at the best possible price.
We manage our trainee gas engineers progress on our own employer HR database so that if you have problems with any of the training stages, provider, or at worst the centre goes bust with your ,money, we are able to continue your training at no extra cost through an alternative provider. This has been one of the most attractive benefit to our students in the past 3 years.
Our popularity has come through word of mouth from the many gas engineers we have sponsored, and inducted into the gas industry with their own gas licence, employer support and professional profile. If you want to be a gas engineer and you want the security of knowing we have your back please contact us for more information.
Because our primary business is domestic and commercial gas engineering, we have limited spaces on this particular program. We are not competing against any of the training providers and we offer excellent prospects for those engineers choosing to join the gas industry with us.
