I found the Fire Officers course to be extremely well run and informative. The trainers at the rescue station are highly qualified and could not do enough to help the students in our class. After completing this course, the trainers at the Rescue Station have always been helpful in any follow up questions or queries I have made. The team at the station also used external resources, included personnel from the Mines Department. The facilities are well suited for practical demonstration. I would highly recommend this course and facility.
