This training provides delegates with the skills and knowledge they need to be able to react positively to a fire or possible fire at their premises. The course covers all basic fire hazards and the consequential risks in the workplace, as well as the main measures which need to be taken to minimise fire risks.

Candidates who attend this course should not have any current medical conditions that may prevent them from being able to handle or operate portable fire extinguishers.

Due to the nature of the training course and the emphasis placed on communication, there is only a provision for the assessments to be undertaken in English. Therefore, candidates for this type of training must be able to understand and speak the English language. 

This course teaches candidates how to evacuate the part of the premises they are responsible for should a fire occur. It also teaches candidates how to select and safely operate the correct portable fire extinguisher – all candidates who attend this course will receive practical training on how to use a fire extinguisher.

At the end of this course, candidates should:

  • Know fire triangle and how fires spread
  • Know how fires are classed and extinguished
  • Identify, select and use a fire extinguisher for the class of fire encountered
  • Understand main requirements of fire safety legislation
  • Know the relevance of fire risk assessment to fire warden
  • Know the general duties of a fire warden
  • Know the duties of a fire warden in the event of a fire
