Insight & Experience

Our courses bring real insight and experience into learning to contextualise and enhance the e-learning experience. We don’t provide generalist training; we just teach the disciplines that we have genuine expertise in and our tutors have a proven track record in this discipline.


The aim of our courses is to enable you to acquire knowledge and understanding using a mode of study that fits in with your work and other commitments. Different people will be able to allocate different amounts of time per week to follow the course. The important thing is that you go at your own pace in order to ensure that you understand and learn the information which it contains. All information needed will be provided by the study unit text in a progressive and logical way.

Just wrapped up my lightning protection foundation course with Millbrook First, and its an absolute gem! It takes what could be mind-boggling theory and breaks it down into bite-sized, easy-to-digest chunks, using relatable examples and clear explanations. Whether you’re a novice or have some background in the field, this course is a must. I can’t recommend it highly enough to anyone looking to grasp the fundamentals of lightning protection. Trust me, you won’t regret it!

Hi Colin,

Thank you for the online training course that you provided it was really informative and helped me widen my knowledge of the industry.

As a client I found the inspection section very helpful as I now know what is required to comply with the regulations.
