Where do we meet for Observed Runs?

Associates are usually allocated to Observers on a one-to-one basis starting at a location to suit you and your observer.

At the roundabout at the end of the A376 dual carriageway, turn right and then turn right again into the Fire Service headquarters.  Use the car park on the left and walk to the building.  The entrance is through glass doors in the centre of the building which lead to the reception area.   The doorway to the left of the desk leads to a coffee lounge and there are stairs on the right hand side of it which  lead to two lecture rooms - we will be using the left hand one "A".  

Afterwards coffee will be available in the lounge.

Approaching from Exeter on the A376 [same road as for Clyst St. George] continue past the Clyst St George roundabout - Clyst St George to the left, Fire Service HQ to the right - to the next roundabout. Take the 2nd exit towards Topsham, and Darts Farm is a few hundred metres on the right.

Turn right on entering the site, and drive round to the rear of the main building, where we will have some allocated space in the staff car park, look for the IAM sign!
