Who Should Take This Course?

This course is designed for the designated fire wardens or marshals in a workplace. While it is not a replacement for practical training in how to use fire extinguishers (which all fire wardens / marshals must receive), our course can be taken as an introduction to using fire extinguishers before you undergo practical training, as well as a refresher after receiving practical instruction.

Practical fire extinguisher training is typically refreshed every 3 years, so this course can act as a useful reminder in between your practical sessions. It'll solidify your knowledge and give you the confidence to use an extinguisher safely in an emergency.
