GAS Trainer, ACS Assessor & Internal Verifier

Steve Rosher


Before he joined us, Steve worked in the police for 14 years where he gained his teaching and assessor qualifications and subsequently performed numerous roles including Law Trainer, Public Order Trainer and Tactical Advisor and Personal Safety instructor. Following a security sector job in Iraq, Steve moved back to North Wales to work in property development with his father. This prompted him to decide to take on a new path, training with Brookhouse to qualify as a gas engineer.

Steve made extensive enquiries with a number of gas training providers but after thorough analysis, he decided to choose Brookhouse based on the quality of training facilities and the encouraging attitude he could notice straight away. The placement guarantee tipped the scales, as it was the only course that promised a work experience.

Steve had a successful and profitable gas engineering business before being contacted by Brookhouse requesting whether he would be able to cover a six-week course due to staff sickness. After much thought he agreed to run the course and has been here ever since. Passionate about teaching, Steve loves introducing students to the world of plumbing and gas engineering, seeing them progress from no knowledge at all to competent engineers out in the jobs. He keeps in touch with his trainees to see how they are getting on and is always happy to see them in great jobs.

Steve says about Brookhouse:

“I think we go over and above what a lot of other colleges and training establishments do, because of the facilities we’ve got. 2 weeks plumbing, 6 weeks gas – it’s crammed full of knowledge, of legislation they need to know, they get a lot of practical skills while they’re here. The facilities are now fantastic, having gone through a massive investment, the new assessment area is fantastic, but for me the biggest thing that makes Brookhouse stand out is that it’s a small business and that every member of staff and the business cares about the future of our students.”

Steve is an avid Grand Prix fan and attended numerous events – rumour has it in his younger years he used to marshall at those events! One of his biggest interests is property maintenance and development. He renovated numerous properties of his own and assisted his dad in a number of his projects. Steve also enjoys travelling and socialising with friends.

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.

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.
