The course was very interesting and professionally delivered. Everything is clearly structured, and all the information is very well explained. I look forward to doing another one.

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.
