What's being said about NFPA on-site training

"We work hand-in-hand with our clients to ensure safety, and we want to make sure the NEC® is followed during installation, operation, and maintenance of our products.  Having NFPA's National Electrical Code® Essentials training at our facility was a great way to learn how the NEC addresses wire sizing, electrical workspace, and other concepts. For example, to help us understand compliance failure and how it might affect product safety, NFPA's instructor elaborated on what the hazards would have been if improper sizing were selected. Our instructor was very open to questions and made sure we understood the issues and could solve problems on our own before moving on.  I would definitely participate in another NFPA training. In fact, I am currently looking into training for NFPA 70E®."
Melinda Ammerman, Product Safety Engineer, GE Energy, Greenville, NC 

"I'm responsible for life safety drawings for surveyable components in St. John's Hospital and in other buildings on campus.  It was very helpful to have NFPA's Life Safety Code® training right at our facility. The Life Safety Code® is quite complex, so a refresher course makes me more comfortable with the Code. The training's audio-visual component was nicely varied with interactive elements. Live-action footage makes more of an impression than anything else. NFPA's knowledgeable instructor made the program all worthwhile.  He knew his subject extremely well and also was very flexible with regard to taking questions, reviewing concepts, and putting the Code to practical applications within our facility. We covered lots of ground and it was always interesting and memorable. I think the instructor even incorporated photos he took at our site into the presentation."
- Mark Kastner, Supervisor, Construction Projects Group, Maintenance Department, St. John's Hospital, Springfield, MO 

"There are so many policies and procedures for confined spaces in a clean fuels terminal. API/NFPA Safe Tank Entry is worth its weight in gold because it provides comprehensive training that helps us continuously improve safety. All managers face the same requirements and hurdles to overcome in daily operations. API/NFPA Safe Tank Entry brought us together as a team and offered a venue to ask questions and learn the finer details of testing confined spaces. The instructor was knowledgeable about our industry and had a professional 'can-do' attitude. If he didn't know the answer to a specific question, he was willing to help us find the solution. This training will help to keep our accident/injury low and ensure our terminals remain safe. Great class!”
Daniel Thomas, Terminal Manager, NuStar Energy, Stockton, CA 

"I use NFPA 101® on a daily basis and often need to explain concepts to clients and staff.  There's only so much the Code can do in black and white – attending the on-site Life Safety Code® training was very helpful because NFPA's instructor was able to explain the intent behind requirements. Understanding the background enables you to solve problems on your own. It was wonderful to attend the training along with my client because we all received the same information about Code reasoning and are on the same page. The training's visuals illustrated application in practice. I really enjoyed gaining new Code knowledge from the authority."
