Why Choose The Lightning Protection Academy

Our courses are written by a highly-experienced practitioner in the field of lightning protection.

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.

Really enjoyed this course, good laugh with Colin yet still very educational. I think it works well being flexible and you do it at your own pace. Would recommend the course to anyone who is looking to get into the lightning protection trade. Will be in contact with Colin regarding my next course.

Fabulous training, really informative and well structured. It covers everything very thoroughly and interestingly. Really concise with the right amount of recapping to ensure the information sticks and at the end has a good amount of support material to help ensure that test and inspection reports can be carried out in a consistent format
