It involves the skills and knowledge required to operate and check firefighting equipment in accordance with manufacturers’ instructions and workplace emergency procedures, including identifying and selecting the appropriate equipment, using the firefighting equipment to fight a fire, and checking that the firefighting equipment is operational.
We provide both theory training and practical extinguisher training during this course. Participants view a powerpoint presentation and complete a workbook and quizz. For the practical part of the course, if permitted at your site, we light a controlled fire in a fire pan, or we create a mock fire scenario if we are not permitted to light a controlled fire at your site, and each participant gets experience in handling a fire extinguisher. Standard course topics include:
