AO launches funded gas apprenticeships

Online electricals retailer AO has introduced funded gas apprenticeships as it invests in training to grow its fleet of qualified engineers.

Providing an accessible pathway to the Level 3 gas qualification, the fully funded course is open to both current employees and contracted drivers. The programme is running alongside a new apprenticeship funded by the government levy, which is open to anyone with a full driving license.

Lynne Wood, director of service delivery at AO Logistics, said: “I’m so proud that we can now invest in providing accessible opportunities by offering these gas apprenticeships for the first time. Many of the contracted drivers and electrical installers have jumped at the chance to train in gas, and I’m so pleased we can support their future careers. With more qualified gas engineers on hand, we can also make our leading delivery and installation proposition even better for customers.”

Running for up to 16 weeks, the scheme consists of both online and classroom teaching, as well as on-the-road experience to quickly upskill participants.

As part of AO’s installation offering, its engineers disconnect customers’ old appliances at the point of delivery and then install new ones with a full health check.
