Student Feedback March 2022

“Thoroughly enjoyed the trainers teaching/instructing experience, as he accommodated to the class of which most are hands on - making the learning practical with a good sense of humour. It captivated the class which helps with remembering our learnings. His relative stories with the fire service help embed the emphasis on health & safety. Definitely recommend.”
