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.

I wouldn’t go anywhere else when it comes to any LP training. Millbrook Academy have created a syllabus that truly suits the needs of the learners. Easy to use and understand! Looking forward to progressing with more training using Millbrook Academy!

I have recently came back from attending my BS EN 62305 Foundation Course & I have to say that spending the day with Colin was an eye opening, constructive day. There was no stone unturned & easy to follow. Great Job Colin & proud to be taught once again by the best in the Industry.

I recently undertook the new BSEN62305 foundation course with Colin and a colleague of mine, we spent the day with Colin going over the requirements of the standard, Risk assessments, Surge protection etc.
I have been in the Industry for over 30 years, and With Colin’s knowledge of Lightning protection he has helped me better understand 62305 and its complexities in a relaxed and enjoyable manner. Thank you Colin for helping some one who thought they knew this industry from what I was taught to having a better understanding than ever before. Truly Inspiring!

Brilliant course, I found it a good refresher and learning exercise. The e-learning course is great if you are embarking upon coming a LPS Engineer or as a refresher training, perhaps for CPD. The video tutorials are clear and gives you invaluable instructions when out in the field, conducting LPS Testing and Inspection.
