I'm a qualified motor mechanic having worked on all types of Heavy Goods Vehicles. lectured for two years as a visiting lecturer in the Motor Department of the Regional College, now Cork Institute of Technology. I served 33 years as a full time Fireman and Officer in the Cork City Fire Department, where I was involved in driver training bringing Fireman to a standard and skill level required to meet the demands of the emergency services. During this period I attended all manner of road traffic accidents from minor collisions to major road traffic incidents. This allows me to bring a wealth of knowledge and real life experience to my courses.
