Just wrapped up my lightning protection foundation course with Millbrook First, and its an absolute gem! It takes what could be mind-boggling theory and breaks it down into bite-sized, easy-to-digest chunks, using relatable examples and clear explanations. Whether you’re a novice or have some background in the field, this course is a must. I can’t recommend it highly enough to anyone looking to grasp the fundamentals of lightning protection. Trust me, you won’t regret it!

Hi Colin,

Thank you for the online training course that you provided it was really informative and helped me widen my knowledge of the industry.

As a client I found the inspection section very helpful as I now know what is required to comply with the regulations.
