    Hello everyone.

    I'm hoping to become a commercial gas engineer. I'm time served and have yet to do my Gas Safe. I have to save money myself in order to do the course.

    I want to do commercial gas and maybe in the future open my own business with the ability to carry out work on commercial properties.

    The thing is I'm kind of stumped on where to start. Do I go through my core gas and then on to my commercial or do I work for a commercial company first then do my gas?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks for reading!

    No I don't thanks to my local college. They changed to renewables as I came up to level 3. I was tamping.

    I've been in the domestic game about 6 years...

    The best way is to get a job as a commercial plumbers mate and work up from there not quick your looking at prob around 10 years but you will know your salt

    That’s the main thing, I don’t want to do my commercial gas and wing it. I want to know my onions...

    How do I get in with a commercial firm though having been bread in domestic?

    Ive not got commercial gas (only domestic) but I do industrial refrigeration which is, just like commercial gas a specialized sector and not something can be gained without 10 + years experience
