Training & CPDs

Global Academy


We invest a substantial amount of our time devising and delivering training sessions. Global Technical Services (GTS) strongly believe in personal development and improving fire safety knowledge in all sectors.

It’s important for Fire and Rescue Services to receive this form of training as it’s an aspect of fire safety they are not trained in. Providing this information to them ensures a better understanding of the fire safety industry, and allows for improved levels of safety for the general public.

At GTS, we believe that providing this training for companies like the NHS and housing associations allows for fire safety knowledge and procedures to be improved in different sectors. By improving fire safety of different sectors, we are allowing for the safety of the wider society, therefore reinforcing our motto that ‘fire safety is our whole business’.
