Gas Trainer & ACS Assessor

Alan Butcher


It was a varied, exciting career path that brought Alan to us. He used to work for HSBC and FirstDirect as Credit Services Manager and then moved from finances to run his own Property Maintenance company. Pub owner for 7 years, Alan also worked as a gas engineer for a while, before being successful in obtaining the tutor position at Brookhouse. He’s since taken his assessing qualifications too and has been working with us since 2015.

Alan is another of our fantastic students who have come to Brookhouse on strong recommendation because they wanted to change their career. He trained at Brookhouse in one of the evening courses, gained his industry experience and came back to us to share his knowledge with new trainees.

Alan says: “I love what I do, the people I work with and I love sharing the knowledge and experience I’ve gained over the years with people who want to change their careers and ultimately, their lives.”

Alan loves taking on new adventures and learning new skills – though he never quite mastered drumming; he likes music, socialising and training hard. True to his name, he is a qualified Martial Arts coach and trainer in Kempo, Muaythai and Jujitsu!

The reason we have the reputation of being the best gas training centre in the UK, we give our students what they need to work competently with gas, not what is easiest and quickest for us to deliver.
