It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Fire Service College, the world- leading training centre for emergency services and all aspects of national resilience and critical national infrastructure.
While we are very privileged to be home to the very best training infrastructure, it is the people – both my colleagues and those who train here – that make FSC what it is. We are very much at the heart of professional development and warmly welcome all – whether you are just starting out in your career or arriving with many years of experience.
It is a privilege to welcome learners and visitors from across the UK and the entire world to FSC and it is hugely rewarding to see professionals developing their skills to deal with whatever challenges may come their way.
Not only do our learners and visitors benefit from the very best instructors and access to leading industry experts but our college also gives them the opportunity to establish connections with their peers. I’m well aware from my time here that often these connections last a lifetime and are so important in providing much-needed support and encouragement throughout individuals’ careers.
My colleagues and I are dedicated to giving each learner and visitor the very best experience and ensuring that everyone leaves feeling confident in, and empowered by, the experiences, knowledge and skills they have gained during their time with us.
FSC’s unique incident training ground and conference facilities are also a preferred venue choice for a multitude of organisations. We are also home to the Defence Fire Training Unit, which is a joint venture between FSC and the MOD. As part of the Capita family, we are able to access the group’s many capabilities and resources for the benefit of our customers.
I look forward to welcoming you to the Fire Service College.
Dominik Wellmann – Managing Director
