CASE STUDY

Final Rank: Warrant Officer

Ray West, owner and director of RW Safety Solutions, originally attended the Vulcan Fire Manager course in 2001 before ELCs existed. He worked his way up the H&S career ladder to become an IOSH Chartered Safety Practitioner and Fellow of the International Institute of Risk & Safety Management (IIRSM) and commented:  

"Fire safety management has always been integral to my work which is now as an independent health & safety consultant and safety trainer. The original Fire Manager course also assisted greatly in my achieving full membership of the Institute of Fire Prevention Officers (IFPO). The Advanced Fire Safety Manager course, which I completed in 2013, has additionally helped me during fire safety related work such as during fire risk assessments, fire safety training and when providing fire safety guidance and direction to clients."

The fundamentals and practical skills gained during both courses still assist me considerably today.  I can confidently submit that Vulcan's Fire Manager courses are excellent in quality, content and value, and provide an invaluable skill set for all safety professionals. Furthermore I would strongly recommend that any budding safety professionals and fire safety professionals seriously consider these courses as part of their own career paths.  I can recommend Vulcan in every aspect from the quality of tuition through to their customer service and support.
