A great course for anyone wishing to progress their career in fire safety management and as a route for gaining professional recognition.
After extensive research online to find suitable accredited courses in this sector, I identified Vulcan Fire Training that met the requirements I was after. The first course I attended was the Fire Risk Assessor course and I was overwhelmed with the knowledge delivered during the training by the instructor, the supporting material and the advice given on all aspects around the topic. After that, I continued towards the Managing Fire Safety course and finally the Fire Manager Advance Diploma course which led me to achieve the Diploma. Special thanks go to the instructors Mr Julian Richardson and Mr Robert Holloway for their insights and direction. I highly recommend these courses delivered by Vulcan Fire Training to all fire safety professionals and risk managers
I found the 3 courses very beneficial in the role which I fulfil for the Council, the method of learning and delivery was informal and easy to understand. I found the personal approach of both trainers to be supportive and enjoyable process. I would recommend this course to anyone who manages the fire safety or undertake fire supporting duties.
I found the Diploma to be extremely helpful and encouraging. It highlighted areas I need to work on and confirmed my existing knowledge/ expertise. The trainer was a very supportive and knowledgeable trainer. I would recommend this course to anyone who wishes to gain a greater understanding in the nuances of fire safety management.
