Why Become and oil engineer?

Concerns continue to be expressed about the level of qualification possessed by many heating oil installers – many of who are qualified in only one specific area of the job, yet work on other installations they know little about.

Is that concern justified ? Is it too easy to qualify to work on what are potentially environmentally dangerous installations? After all both installers and consumers are now liable to face the consequences of costly oil spills – something oil installers should think carefully about before embarking on a career in the industry.


Gastec is an accredited centre for the training and assessment of operatives requiring accreditation for the installation of oil fired appliances and storage tanks with OFTEC.

Would-be heating oil installers must hold a current certificate of assessed competence before they can apply for OFTEC registration. To get a certificate, they need to pass one of the following assessments:

  • OFT101 – Commissioning/servicing pressure jet oil appliances
  • OFT102 – Installation of vaporising appliances
  • OFT105E – Installation of pressure jet oil appliances
  • OFT600A – Installation and assessment of oil tanks
