Gardiner Associates Training and Research (GATR) …
is the UK’s major provider of inter-agency fire investigation training to police and fire authorities.
The company ethos is that training should be delivered by people who possess and practice intrinsic skills in the subject areas that they teach. To that end, from its launch in 1996, Gardiner Associates has assembled a multi-disciplined team of practitioners. These professionals, who are amongst the most highly experienced and skilled in their disciplines, bring to the classroom and the training ground a wealth of practical insight and technique.
The team continues to provide a range of ‘best value’ training options. Representatives of the majority of British fire and police authorities and former Forensic Science Service (FSS) laboratories have already attended our training programmes and in the past, the FSS has used our practical training facilities to assess and accredit forensic scientists.
