Richard Bracewell

Gas Trainer

Richard Bracewell


Richard has spent many years in the gas industry, exploring different areas of the market. He started his gas adventure as a fireplace installer, working his way up to a senior position in the 13 years he spent at Artisan Fireplaces, one of our work placement providers. Richard then moved on to running his own business; he also assisted British Gas in their Smart Energy projects for nearly 7 years before transitioning to Brookhouse to become a tutor.

Interestingly, Richard has used Brookhouse for many years to train himself and his staff. Once we taught him everything there was to know about gas, we approached him to become a tutor himself. He says he enjoys the atmosphere: “I like the camaraderie of the team and I really enjoy passing knowledge and experience on to others to see them succeed in their new career.”

In his spare time, Richard can be found going on long walks with his family; he likes motorsport and fast cars, and enjoys cooking and good food.

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.
