This course is in line with the BAFE Certificated Fire Extinguisher Maintenance Refresher Course and is a recommendation to keep your skills, knowledge and practices up to date as techniques and trends change over a period of time. We suggest a three-year refresher period which would allow for those new techniques to be incorporated.
This training incorporates; fire extinguisher testing refresher course, fire extinguisher inspection refresher course, fire extinguisher maintenance refresher course.
Having the BAFE certification and passing the Initial course is an excellent achievement, however BAFE now have stipulated any technicians MUST get some form of refresher training within a 3-year period – even if they have been continually performing the role of a service technician.
