Fire Safety Training Courses

Our fire safety training instructors are fully qualified and insured fire safety professionals registered with the Institution of Fire Engineers. When they deliver a course they can draw on their years of experience to deliver interesting, meaningful training content.

The instructors who operate with us have over 27 years experience in the job & remain competent by attending regular refresher training courses recognised by the government and the IFE.

Our key fire safety training courses are the Fire Safety Manager Course, the Fire Warden / Marshal Course, the general Fire Safety Awareness Course and the most popular one, the Fire Extinguisher Users Course. All of our fire safety training courses are Certificated and designed around your specific risk if required. They are tailored so that the course is relevant to the circumstances and the people who work, use or frequent the building. Many less professional training providers will turn up and put a video on. This may prove to be inadequate under the law or in Health and Safety language, not suitable or sufficient. Many companies use online training aids. We do not advise the use of this training technique because students retain a lot less information. A pointless exercise if you want someone to be 'trained properly'. And of course you can't ask computer screen a specific question or relate to real experience as you would with a trained serving Fire Officer.

Our advice to any person given the responsibility of arranging training is ask your training provider to visit you and go over the course detail. We prefer to do this. We can then gauge the level of training required and advise of the most cost effective way to achieve conformity for the building or risk involved. We do not charge any visit fee and we do not charge extra for bespoke design.

We have several very attractive offers on at the moment. Please visit our other pages and please feel free to contact us about anything related to Fire safety or training.
