“I have undertaken the 3 day fire extinguishers training course and thanks to the
instructor it was an enjoyable experience. Thanks to the instructor’s method of
teaching in a more practical manner, and explaining to us from a technician’s point
of view, he made it very easy to understand and learn. I would recommend this
course to everyone wanting to learn in a friendly and comfortable environment.”
