The Programme ” Gas Technician” deals with the installation, operation and maintenance of gas networks and equipment of liquefied petroleum gas in residential, industrial and business units, as well as the transportation, distribution, and control of such products.
After finding exploitable quantities of natural gas in Cyprus Exclusive Economic Zone, new prospects have been created for the island aiming to channel and utilise this natural resource in order to turn it into the main source of energy in Cyprus. The realization of this objective is expected to create new job opportunities in various sectors of the economy while developing professions related to the exploitation of gas and petroleum which until recently did not exist in the Cypriot market.
Recent surveys conducted by various authorities and organisations on the situation and perspective of various professions in Cyprus, showed that there is a great shortage of properly qualified people in key technical areas of industry and construction and especially artisans in the gas and petroleum sector. In addition, it has been recorded that there is a steadily increasing demand for qualified personnel, in the period 2010-2020, in specific technical sectors including the industrial and construction. The above facts combined with the lack of any other existing programme of studies in Cyprus, has led to the creation of this program in order to meet the increasing demands of the profession and to provide with excellent prospects for advancement and satisfaction in gaseous fuel such as natural gas and others.
