Engineer Training

Courses are organised and delivered to ensure engineers working in, or pursuing careers in, commercial catering receive both the knowledge and the experience they  need to succeed in the industry.

Combico UK is certified by Logic Certification to run gas courses and carry out assessments under the Nationally Accredited Certification Scheme (ACS) for Gas Fitting Operatives. It caters for both the experienced gas engineer looking to renew ACS qualifications or an engineer that wants training to broaden skill sets.

Comprehensive engineer training packages provide the best available technical insight into cooking appliances.

On successful completion of their training engineers receive a certificate of competence. They will also have access to the First Choice Group online parts database, technical documents and dedicated support from our technical training team.

Combico UK also offers pre-learning packs prior to assessments so as to minimise the amount of time that engineers might ordinarily take in order to pursue training, which may compromise their day job.
