About Us

We offer high quality training delivered flexibly to meet customer requirements in the fire safety sector.

Xact trains personnel from over 50 fire brigades throughout the British Isles and Eire, delivering hundreds of courses each year. We are also proud to work with building control professionals. See Courses below for more about our customer base.

We have developed specialist programmes in investigation, enforcement and prosecution; fire engineering including a Level 5 Fire Engineering Design course; schools; healthcare premises and historical buildings.

Xact leads the way in offering national fire safety qualifications by Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), a system it pioneered to assist delegates to achieve qualifications via evidence-gathering from previous experience and learning.

Our ability to tailor courses, which are conducted in-house or at our Midlands-based training facility, to precise customer requirements accounts for our popularity. Listening and responding to customer feedback is an essential part of the service.
