"The fire extinguisher refresher course paid for itself in days, it’s good for our
technicians to hear an independent point of view and understand the liabilities to
clients, our firm and themselves. The BS 5306 Pt8 element has really helped our
technicians’ self-assurance when discussing additional equipment with customers."
