I attended the course to ensure I was up to date with current legislation and guidance. The course instructor was very knowledgeable and had a certain way of conveying information that made it stick.
The course was very precise and covered all areas. It wasn’t an easy course and you had to have good levels of concentration. But if you want a Fire Manager Advanced Diploma, it’s got to be done.
I found the course was challenging yet logical to follow with a clear path of progression. The instructor was relaxed and made us feel welcome whilst providing as much support to individuals as they required.
There was good content and very good examples of situations and strategies that we would be likely to find in our day to day working lives. I would not hesitate to recommend this course to other professionals responsible for fire safety.
Excellent course. Although there was a lot of content to cover, it was delivered and structured very well.
The balance of learning between theory and practical was perfect and has given me a better understanding of fire risk assessments to take back to my role. I would definitely recommend this course for anyone who works in this industry.
I attended the Fire Manager Advanced Diploma in Warrington earlier this year.
The course was very well run and informative. I found the workload reasonable, however there was some work required back at the hotel which was to be expected at this level.
The venue was excellent and communication afterwards was great. I would be more than happy to recommend Vulcan to others who wish to complete this course.
