“I just wanted to tell you that the course I am doing at the moment Principles of Fire Engineering is absolutely amazing.  It is so informative yet comes across in an easy to understand manner.

I would urge other fire professionals out there to take a look and invest in the training.  It is very inexpensive compared to how much you will learn from the course. When I have completed this I will be booking on the Smoke Protection module. I have also looked at the basic course and even though I have worked in the fire industry for 17 plus years and have vast amount of experience I do feel that I can learn from the basic courses, as your knowledge is fantastic and you put so much practical advice in the courses.

At present I am working in London with a lot of management agents who work in different types of accommodation and I am always asked which course they should get the staff to attend.  You can rest assured that I will be giving them your website details and promoting your courses. Thank you so very much for providing a course so in depth yet so very affordable.”
