My name is T. Krishnamurthy (USN: 1ID16DIS16) from Raichur. Few years back I already completed safety courses from Safety institutes in Karnataka and Hyderabad by spending approximately of Rs 2 Lakhs. Later on i came to know that safety courses from those institutes are not valued and unauthorised. Due to lack of awareness most of the students ended up in taking safety courses in unauthorised & Fake institutes by wasting their valuable Time and Money. Later on my friend suggested me about IIISM. IIISM is recognised safety institute as per Factories act in Karnataka from Dept of Factories & Boilers, more than equivalent to RLI. I got admissions in IIISM for 2016- 17 batch. Thanks to IIISM
