4 – Emergency Duties and Drills

The fourth topic describes the role of a fire marshal in an emergency. It covers how the fire marshal can help other workers to evacuate safely. It also covers how to check that a building has been evacuated, and what to do once outside the building.

5 – Human Behaviour in Response to an Alarm

Topic five describes how people react when an alarm sounds. It also outlines how valuable time can be gained when people understand what they must do.

6 – Fire Causes

Topic six identifies the frequency of fires in non-domestic dwellings and also describes some of the causes of these fires.


Once you have completed the six topics, you will be allowed to take the assessment. The course generates an assessment from question banks so that the questions change each time a candidate takes the assessment. This makes the training suitable for initial and refresher training.

There is no limit on the number of attempts at the assessment. In addition, the course gives useful feedback so candidates can learn from incorrect responses.
