    Great course very informative and great instructor. Definitely gained alot of knowledge from the training, and lunch was amazing !

  13. Chris A

    An informative and professionally presented course giving an even mix of legal requirements, theory of installation and maintenance and hands on practical work. Instructor very knowledgeable and reassuring and worked at a good pace ensuring no-one was left behind. For me, as a potential for assessing the installation process, a little more time on the legal aspects and the role of the Responsible Person and the fire risk assessment would be useful, but overall excellent.

  14. Avene Furness-Monks

    A course definitely worth attending if you want to keep up to date with the latest standards and requirements. I would recommend to anyone wanting to know the ins and outs of fire dampers.
