Great training module, very interesting and informative. Delivered in a professional manner. Such awareness that most of the staff who attended either went out that same day and bought a fire alarm or changed the location of their alarm at Home!

We found FITAC to be an excellent partner for our Training Requirements in our Logistics Business. The program they delivered was perfectly tailored to our business needs which resulted in out Team getting the maximum benefits from each session. The Trainer who delivered the program, Mario, was fantastic and brought a brilliant approach which was both practical and engaging. Based on both my Team and my experience with FITAC I would have no issue in recommending them to any organisation.

I recently attended a course on ergonomics and found it to be very interesting and informative. The trainer was very professional and friendly and explained everything to us, he followed up with sending us on further information for our assistance. This is a very good course for health and safety in the work place.

I found the course on fire safety and fire extinguisher use very informative, interesting, engaging and relevant to our work setting and even domestic settings. Our instructor at the time, Ciaran, was very knowledgeable about the subject. I highly recommend FITAC.
