"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."
