Fire Awareness Training Course
Fire Awareness course is an online course which is designed to ensure employees are aware of the dangers of fire and the risks around the workplace. This course does not have a practical element, and you will, therefore, not become accredited or qualified as an appointed person.
How long is the Fire Awareness course?
The course is delivered over approximately three hours.
Who should attend the Fire Awareness course?
Anyone in the workplace should attend this course; the more people aware of fire safety, the better.
Is the Fire Awareness course accredited?
The course is accredited by 3B Training.
When does my Fire Awareness certificate expire?
The Fire Awareness qualification is valid for three years then must be renewed by reattending the course.
This course can be delivered via Online / Remote Learning or in the classroom as an in-house course.
Fire Awareness training is available to attend as an online course through virtual conferencing software Zoom. A tutor delivers the online learning course to a group of up to 12 delegates who are each attending remotely. To access the course, delegates must have a device with a camera, microphone and access to the internet and will log in through a link provided by 3B. All course materials, including the exam, are provided and completed electronically.
If you have a group of individuals who need to attend the course, we can arrange the course to be delivered in-house to your company. The course can be delivered in the classroom or via remote learning. Fire Awareness is the perfect course to be delivered in-house because all of your workers should have basic fire safety knowledge. The format encourages the delegates to discuss company-specific procedures and how they can improve their current processes.
