Our Trainers and Consultants

We have now developed a network of over 50 Fire Service and Ex-Fire Service specialists. They have all been selected for their friendly and constructive attitude designed to make all courses you book with us both educational and enjoyable.

Being from the Fire Service means that they have no end of “real life” experience to underpin the training and consultancy services they offer. Their aim is not to rely on parrot fashion regurgitation of dull facts, but to make the training vivid with real life examples in all areas of the syllabus.

Our trainers have all been fire fighters but have also served in fire safety enforcement and have worked on both large and small commercial projects. They aim to make all training customer focused and will spend time with individual delegates to ensure they fully understand all aspects of the training they receive in the context of their role and workplace.

Describing each consultant would not be practical but here are 3 examples of the trainers / consultants we have:
