We can deliver this training at your premises, anywhere in the UK
Our training for Fire Wardens and Marshals has been specifically designed for those who have been allocated fire safety responsibilities within their workplace and require education in regards to fire safety, evacuation procedures, prevention, and practical use of safety equipment.
What does the Course Involve?
The course is split into three sections, and offers complete teachings in the theory of fire safety and provides a practical session. These sections cover safe evacuation, prevention of fire through risk assessments and other methods, and hands on experience using safety paraphernalia. During the course, we will teach simple and effective ways to prevent fires, the difference between and purposes of each extinguisher and how to use them, along with how to classify different types of fire.
The practical session included in the training allows attendees to get hands on experience reacting and responding to a fire, and offers a chance to safely and properly use appropriate fire extinguishers. During this section, our trained instructors will also demonstrate the correct use of a fire blanket.
We believe that a mixture of theory and practical sessions provides the best learning experience for our clients. Breaking the course into sections allows for safety information to be easily digested and remembered. Practicing using an extinguisher helps eliminate time loss and improper use when confronted by a fire.

Who is the Course Available to?
This course is open to individuals working in any sector, from carers to office workers. We can even facilitate training of a whole workplace by creating a course that includes training that has been modified to the size of your workplace and the industry that you work within.
We group our courses into sectors so that if a smaller number of your team is attending, they get the most appropriate training for your business, regardless of your location or size. An example of this is the childcare and nursery warden and marshal training that we offer, where we focus on employees’ duty of care and responsibilities when it comes to evacuating small children.
How Long is the Course?
This is a half-day course that lasts 2.5 to 3 hours. This includes a midway break and a question and answer session at the end.
If you feel that a longer course would be more suitable for your workplace, please get in touch and speak to a member of our team to find out what bespoke courses we offer.
