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.

Effective Training

We recognise that e-learning is a cost effective training method and is becoming an important part of many organisations’ training and development activities which is why we now offer e-learning courses to complement the classroom based learning we traditionally offer.

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

Colin was an amazing teacher, he thought me so much about Lightning Protection, amazing lessons for an amazing price! However I would appreciate a bit more time in the future as me being autistic I struggled to get it done in a couple weeks, it took me a couple months every day for 8 weeks.
