“I highly recommend doing the Fire Warden Course with Realm. The course was extremely informative and Mike Mitchell- the tutor continuously made sure we understood what was being taught. It was a great addition getting hands-on experience on how to use the multiple types of fire extinguishers. Mike was also very happy to answer any questions we had. “
