How long is the Fire Warden course?

We deliver the course over approximately three hours.

Within that time, you will take part in both classroom learning and practical demonstrations. You will also be able to ask the tutor any questions after the training.

The short duration allows you to be as productive as possible and qualify quickly.

Why should I take this course?

This course is for employees who have the responsibility for fire conduct. The training is vital to assure the safety of your colleagues. In the course, you will learn how to conduct your fire warden duties within the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Depending on the size of your business, you will need a certain number of fire marshals. You will require enough to cover the size of the building and enough backup if any fire wardens are absent. You don’t want to be in an emergency with no trained personnel on-site.

By having one or more fire wardens in your business, you contribute to reducing the fire hazards in the workplace. They will notice high-risk activity and prevent the risk. Fire can not only be hazardous, but it can also be very costly to a business afterwards.
