“Legal Experience Training has provided my team with tailored training for the last 4 years. One of the key benefits is that I have been able to discuss our own policies and procedures with Legal Experience Training and use this as the foundation for developing bespoke and relevant training. Penny Harper’s extensive professional and technical knowledge is combined with very engaging yet thought provoking training skills. This quickly puts students at ease and allows them to interact with the subject and understand how it applies to their work and role. As a result, team feedback from Legal Experience Training’s courses is always excellent, but more importantly as the manager, its impact is also evident and sustained in their subsequent work. Ultimately, it gives team members the confidence to be able to fully apply their specialist knowledge of fire guided by, but not fearful of, the legal environment and requirements. As one of my team said the training delivery is A+++. Legal Experience Training’s professionalism is also maintained in the high quality and timeliness of their administration including the registration on accredited courses and the delivery of certificates”.

“Penny Harper and Legal Experience Training delivered one of the most fundamental and important courses I have attended as a Fire Investigation Officer. The content, subject knowledge and delivery was excellent and has led to significant internal Policy and Procedural changes within Royal Berkshire Fire & Rescue Service. The importance of this course and qualification has now become the key criteria prior to any Fire Investigation Officer achieving competent status”
