“The training has definitely helped me get up to speed quickly by going into more detail about vast subjects that I already had knowledge of, however I would not necessarily have been able to go into as much detail when discussing with a client why certain fire protection measures should be in place. Listening to Russ, and all the guest speakers who delivered the training from Tall Buildings Fire Safety, who are experts in their field and were brilliant, provided very interesting information. Thank you to those who made this programme possible, I really enjoyed the week!”

– Scott Kirkwood, a Fire Safety Advisor

“I attended the training course for fire safety management in tall buildings; although I have been doing fire safety for over 20 years this course really opened my eyes to the plethora of problems that have to be addressed when managing multi occupants in tall buildings and should not be underestimated. The instructors’ were first class they brought their wealth of knowledge and practical experience to all the problems that can occur in these types of buildings and it was illuminating. I would thoroughly recommend this course to any person who has to manage fire safety in tall buildings”
