Our Fire Marshal Training course exceeds the 3 minimum legal levels for fire training and includes;
- General Fire Safety
- Fire Extinguisher Training (Practical use of fire extinguishers is optional)
- Competent Person Training (Fire Marshal / Fire Warden)
- ID Card
- Fire Marshal Handbook (electronic copy)
- Ongoing Support and Advice
Fire Marshals perform a vital role in the fire strategy of a building and persons attending our courses are given the appropriate training.
Courses are very relaxed and informal, and the emphasis is on helping attendees in their workplace.
Attendees do not need to bring anything with them but, if possible, they should familiarise themselves with their emergency procedures and /or fire risk assessment.
This is not essential as these topics will be discussed on the day, however it may be useful should they wish to ask us any questions or require clarification on any matter specific to their place of work.
The presentation will be given by one of our experienced trainers.
