Non certified courses

Basic Fire Extinguisher Course

This is a one hour course designed to train your staff so that they can competently use fire extinguishers; we use a mix of electronic media, presentations and manual handling techniques underpinned by years of practical professional experience.

Fire Awareness and Evacuation Procedures

Reduce the risk of a disaster happening with these customised courses that teach the importance of fire awareness as well as reinforcing your existing evacuation procedures.

Kitchen Safety

A training course designed for commercial kitchens, identifying the significant hazards within the kitchen environment and practical advice in using fire extinguishers; covering scenarios such as deep fat frying. This course can be condensed into a one hour session that can be held at the end of a shift.

Incident Responder Course

This is an advanced fire safety training course designed for staff whose job it is to respond to a fire alarm, rather than evacuate with the rest of the staff - normally security or facilities staff.

As an employer you must ensure that staff are appropriately trained. This course covers fire awareness, causes of fire, fire spread, signs of fire spread and how to move in smoke, plus practical advice on the use of extinguishers.
