A small hand-picked selection of other tutors also assist in delivering the course, including highly-experienced ex-Fire Officers.
“My success is absolutely down to your excellent standard of instruction, and the way that you taught us. You actually taught us Health and Safety very thoroughly and you ensured that we understood it – you did not treat it as a cramming exercise, just to pass an exam. Consequently: even a couple of months later, I can still clearly visualise many of the examples and cases that you quoted, in order to bring a rather dry subject to life. I am delighted; my wife is amazed.” Bryan Price, Logistics Manager, British Steel
“I genuinely couldn’t recommend you enough. Hope to be on another of your courses in the future!” Jade Orchard, Health and Safety Advisor, Symington’s Limited
This course provides an appropriate breadth of knowledge for non-specialists in fire safety, so they can be more effective in managing fire safety and providing competent fire risk management advice to their employers or clients. The course is highly beneficial to non-fire safety professionals who have involvement in reviewing fire risk assessments or hands-on management of fire safety risks, such as managers in Production, Engineering, Operations, Facilities and other Operational roles. The course is also popular with Safety Representatives, both Trade Union or non-affiliated.
All costs include exam fees and course materials.
