I recently re-certified in Safe work at heights/Tower Rescue. Shane is an excellent trainer/presenter, nothing slips past his keen eye. Excellent training in a relaxed controlled environment. . I thoroughly recommend Shane and Zokal as a training partner...
Having never taken a heights safety course before, found that the highly knowledgeable instructor and excellent facilities for practical exercises gave me a proper understanding of the applicable regulations, and gave me a good idea of the sort of setup that I will need to implement at my job site.
As a rescue paramedic looking for further training to keep me safe at work, and increase my knowledge I came to do this course before a ropes access course. Shane was a great trainer. Years of experience and knowledge. Great day in. Lunch was good. Training and practical scenarios were great. Facilities very clean with new gear and equipment. Highly recommend it. I’ll be back for more training.
Excellent providers Ron and Daryl, after 13 years of doing this course, I must say I took the most away from this one. Thanks I feel safer at work having learnt from this course.
Just finished the Breathing Apparatus Course with Zokal. Shane the head trainer there is very knowledgeable and an excellent trainer. I'm now confident in the event of an emergency...

Great experience and training was adequate to all my needs and safety requirements.The trainer Shane Marsh was exceptional knowledgeable.
I have just finished a 3 day course, I found the instructor Daryl very very good. I am over 50 and i was worried about going into class (It has been some time since the last time) Daryl took the time I needed and answered all my questions and shared his real life experiences and knowledge. I work for a major aviation companies, they trust Zokal with our training and i believe it is justified. I recommend taking all your training to them.
