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.

Dear Colin
Thank you for visiting our offices today and starting our NVQs students up on their courses. You really seem to go over and above all requirements that we have at DAB Lift and Electrical Services Ltd. All of the course content is excellent. I will happily send all of our staff to you new and old to bring them up the industry’s required standards.
I have had nothing but nice words from our engineers about you.

What more can i say, but thank you and look forward to working with you in the very near future.

Kind regards

I’ve attended two separate courses with Millbrook First, and both experiences have been great. Colin is very knowledgeable in both the theoretical and practical aspects of lightning protection, and he delivers training content in a manner that is easily understood by everyone.

I found this course to be great for achieving my NVQ3. In particular, I found the test & inspection modules to be very useful. Along with this, I also found the video examples of the required video evidence to be most helpful.
As well as the online support, Colin himself was a fantastic tutor who was extremely helpful, approachable and accommodating. I would definitely use Millbrook first again.

Thank you Colin for all your help!

Colin really has a good style of putting information across that was very effective, He made me/ us feel at ease yet let us know the consequence of not performing at the level required.
I wish more instructors on all the courses we attend had his style!
I would MOST defiantly recommend Colin and colleagues to anyone looking to attain the qualification they are striving for. Relaxed, informative and an excellent manner. 10’out of 10’for sure

I found the course to be extremely well delivered. The narrator did well to ensure that the key points were hammered home. I also found the short videos very helpful, as I am a visual learner.
