The training delivery from SimTrainer has been handled in a highly professional manner with many hours of additional work undertaken without additional cost. This has included simulation building on-site, delivery of course certificates, out of course support to candidates, and one-to-one additional tuition.
John himself has demonstrated that he is a reliable, honest, trustworthy and dependable individual. His personal approach has been excellent, reflected in candidate course feedback.
John continues to form part of the incident command training solution for BAE Systems at Warton and his assistance to this department has been particularly pleasing.

John is very well known within the Aviation Fire Sector, for his work with numerous airports, including Manchester. Within the last two years John has been a regular visitor to Manchester Airport, delivering Incident Command courses and workshops. I have personally worked with John, airside on several occasions, whilst assisting in building incident simulations based on photographic and video media. I can verify that John Lord is an established professional both within his current role and his previous career as a Senior Fire Officer within Lancashire Fire and Rescue service. John is man of extreme reliability, integrity and I have no hesitation in recommending John.

John Lord has been the lead instructor on several Fire Service courses I’ve attended over the past 3 years. These include two Multi-Functional Support Officers courses, where John focused on risk management and the roles of functional commanders, and three courses relating to the use of Fire Studio software. On each of the courses I’ve found John to be very approachable, professional and knowledgeable in the subject areas. John’s teaching style has been informal yet structured, and this has proved beneficial in achieving good engagement by the students of each course.

Heathrow Airport Fire & Rescue Service used SimTrainer UK to build bespoke scenarios for our in house Incident Command System training package. They provided a professional customer based service that fully met our needs, including several visits to Heathrow Airport to photograph on location. The scenarios created were not only realistic but also focused on the wide variety of incident types that the Heathrow Airport Fire & Rescue crews could be called to deal with; this with the added bonus of scenarios being on familiar ground. We are extremely happy with the professional service provided by SimTrainer UK, which has exceeded our expectations.
