Just a big thank you following the recent FDC FD Inspectors Course. It was a really worthwhile couple of days where I learnt a lot and developed through practice and professional discussion. The input was well thought out and offered a real move forward after the other courses on fire doors I've undertaken. Thanks for the time taken, really worthwhile.
