Open Days

Quick march to success

We proudly do things differently

Brookhouse Training Centre has been training Service Leavers for many years now, perfecting our four-step programme for ex-servicemen and women. We are very humbled to hear and read the case studies of successful students that are now working full time in their new gas engineering career.

Funding for Military

Our Level 3 Domestic Gas course is fully approved through the MOD’s Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC) Scheme.

Brookhouse have successfully trained hundreds of MOD Service Leavers back into full-time employment through our comprehensive training programme with our 100% Guaranteed Work Placements.

Call us on 0333 22 00 705 to find out more about our ELCAS approved course.

16,000 ...of ex-military personnel leave every year to return to civilian life. We appreciate their transferable skills such as great leadership, stress handling, discipline and teamwork and we cheer them on as they progress through training into their new fantastic careers in gas engineering.

Military Resettlement

Excellent opportunities for ex-servicemen with subsidised courses

Brookhouse Training has decades of experience in helping men and women leaving the armed forces to transition into a new career in Gas and Plumbing. We provide access to funding and do everything we can to help ease resettlement and get you up and running in your new career.

Skilled gas engineers and plumbers are in very high demand as key industries such as construction and energy grow into new exciting ventures and perspectives. With a complete qualification from Brookhouse Training you can take advantage of the current employment gap or take on the challenges and rewards that come with becoming a fully accredited self-employed tradesman.

Success Stories

Transferrable Skills

In addition to the wealth of practical skills and experience you’ll bring to the table, your service time is also likely to offer experience in a range of “soft skills” desirable to employers:

  • Communication skills practised with internal and external stakeholders
  • Organisational skills
  • Leadership & management skills
  • High degree of professionalism
  • Problem solving & initiative
  • Health & Safety
  • Security awareness and best practice
  • Team working

The hands-on experience needed to secure employment in the industry is provided as part of the Brookhouse Training courses – we guarantee a work placement that is local to where you live. Many of our ex-military students are concerned they don’t have relevant practical experience but this is not a barrier to entry at all. Take a closer look at our courses and speak to our team for more details.

I’m really looking forward to my future.

I can’t fault the training at Brookhouse Training, it was excellent. The facilities are exceptional and tutor Steve Rosher is one of the best trainers I’ve ever had. I learnt a lot and I have no doubt this is what secured my full-time job offer with Ultra-Warm Ltd.

Stop thinking about doing the course and get it done.I was a hgv driver for over 15 years no experience in plumbing and gas and was threatening to do the course for a while just wish I had done it sooner.Please don't think u can just attend and pass coz u can't. If u put the work in and study u can pass and succeed. There was times on the course I was thinking how am I going to pass this and wish I hadn't of started it. But after the placement and studying it all sinks in trust. My tutor Chris is a top guy helped with anything I don't understand. Placement was very good I got took on straight away after passing my acs. It took me all in 6 months so it can be done. So it's been just over a year now that I've been employed, the company I work for have paid me to do cookes/fires/Lpg all qualified now. Also I have been doing some jobs of my own aswell. Get it done 5 STAR 100%

I left the Royal Marines after 15 years, having only ever known one employment. The gulf between careers seemed massive.Brook house bridged that gap perfectly. The staff all have a genuine investment in your success.The training and facilities are excellent and leave you well prepared for what you will encounter on site.The work placement was brilliant and selected with care to put you in a strong position to complete your portfolio and ACS.Upon completion Brook house provided advice and support to help me find employment…. 3 days later I was employed.I can’t thank the team enough…well worth it !!

Can't fault this place at all. It was a great place to learn, the tutors were very knowledgeable and patient. It is a fast paced course especially if you have no previous plumbing/gas experience, but if you take their advice to revise and read the books provided it makes it a lot easier to take it all in.My placement was a bit up and down. My placement was cancelled at the last minute but BTC had set me up with another but this could only be for a month. During that month BTC had kept on it and arranged a permanent placement who I am now fully employed with. Cheers Tim. When on placement I needed to get in contact with my tutor for a couple of questions. He was easy to get hold of and was happy to help. Cheers John.All in all I am very happy that I chose Brookhouse and would recommend to anyone.Thank you all at BTC

Best decision I've made with my life.I qualified in around 7 months and got a job with British Gas immediately after passing. The instructors were great, really knew their stuff.Portfolio jobs were marked off by staff usually within a week. Guaranteed placement was good but there were a few issues such as not doing enough gas jobs but it was sorted by brookhouse.£7,000, leaving a job and 6 months unpaid training is a big decision to make. It paid off massively for me. I've now got a career I love, a large payrise and a job I enjoy.A few tips-Study hard, it's a fast paced course.-Have a plan of what you want too do after, I'd recommend employment after. 6 months isn't enough to go self employed I feel.-worth getting accommodation so you can focus on course.
