Who is it for?

It is not a legal requirement for anyone to undergo fire extinguisher awareness training but all employees would benefit from an up-to-date knowledge of fire extinguishers.

Fire marshals/wardens must receive practical training in how to use fire extinguishers. Whilst this course is not a replacement for practical training, it can be used as a good introduction to the use of fire extinguishers before you take the practical training. It can also be used as a refresher after you’ve had your practical training.

When do I get my certificate?

When you have successfully passed the course you will be able to download and print your certificate straight away.

As this Fire Extinguisher Awareness online training course has been accredited by the CPD Certification Service and assured by RoSPA Qualifications, your certificate will contain both logos and can be used to provide evidence for compliance.
