Gas Safe Registered

In order to work as a gas engineer, you must - by law - be Gas Safe Registered. The Gas Safe Register is an official list of gas businesses and individuals who are registered to legally work on boilers, cookers, and other gas appliances. It was brought in to replace CORGI in 2009.

The Register was put in place to protect the public from unsafe gas work and unqualified engineers. In order to join the Register, you must provide evidence of your competence in gas engineering; if an unregistered business or individual attempts to carry out gas work, they may be prosecuted for breaking the law and putting people's safety at risk.

How do you become Gas Safe Registered?

In order to get on the Register, you must first provide evidence of your industry-recognised qualifications. To see a list of accepted qualifications, visit the Gas Safe Register website.

Registration lasts for one year, so engineers and installers must renew their registration annually in order to stay on the Gas Safe Register.

Our Gas Safe Engineers

Here at ImpraGas, we work hard to be a company that customers can trust - we want you to feel completely safe in your home, and so we ensure that all of our installers and service personnel meet the very highest industry standards.

All ImpraGas engineers have trained extensively, earned industry-recognised qualifications, and successfully joined the Gas Safe Register. Our Gas Safe Registration number is 542826.

Look for the ID!

When our engineers arrive to install or service your boiler, they will be wearing ID (including the Gas Safe badge) as part of their uniform. This lets you know that the people working in your home are trustworthy professionals who know what they're doing.

"You should always feel free to ask to see your gas engineer's ID before allowing them to start work. We will only ever allow qualified employees to enter your home - if there's no ID on display, it's not ImpraGas!"

Joseph Valente, now 26 years of age, has come a long way from being someone else's apprentice. From founding his own business to winning The BBC Apprentice in 2015 and entering into a business partnership with Lord Sugar, Joseph's philosophy in all of his endeavours is always to create, maintain and grow. You can't wait for opportunities - you have to create them!

Joseph created his very own opportunity at the age of 16, securing an apprenticeship with a local plumbing company by offering to work for them for free in order to acquire and hone his skills on the job. He knocked on the door of his next opportunity when he took out a loan, went back to college, and qualified as a gas engineer. At the age of 22, Joseph set up ImpraGas, and he spent the company's early years working alongside local estate agents and building up fantastic business relationships by carrying out the maintenance work on all of their managed properties. The business grew from just Joseph and his van to a team 7 engineers, a fleet of vans, and a fully-staffed office. Joseph wasn't going to stop there, though - having been inspired by reading Lord Sugar's autobiography, he decided that he was going to seize another opportunity by applying for the 2015 series of The BBC Apprentice. He managed to beat over 60,000 other applicants and made it onto the BBC show.

Going on the show was a massive risk for Joseph and his business, as he knew he couldn't have any contact with anyone in or out of work for 2 whole months. However, he believed in himself enough to know that he could win, and win he did! Not only did Joseph win a £250,000 investment for his business, he also won the right to call Lord Sugar his business partner and mentor, giving him access to a wealth of knowledge and support. ImpraGas has now expanded to 15 employees and has built a solid foundation in new, larger offices. Joseph is now ready to take the business nationwide by expanding his workforce of engineers, and he is very excited for what the future holds.

Joseph Valente and Lord Sugar

Joseph is passionate about the heating and plumbing industry, and he has set up connections with local schools to bring on apprentices, providing them with the support they need in a work-based environment. Joseph believes that anyone can make a success of becoming a plumber or heating engineer if they are prepared to work hard, persevere, look for those opportunities, and keep building towards their goals.

Looking to the future, Joseph is focused on developing not only his business but also his Installer Elite network. Installer Elite is the UK's largest independent installer network, offering your company an association with a nationally-recognised brand of engineers, manufacturers, product designers, main contractors, and other associated business services. This organisation gives you all of the benefits that larger companies in this industry benefit from while also allowing smaller organisations to unite under one banner to become one voice.
