Expert Fire marshal training courses in Darlington

Fire marshals play a crucial role in keeping people safe – not only are they responsible for minimising the risk of fire, but they are likely to be the first to respond in the unhappy event a fire does break out. All businesses – big or small – are required by law to nominate a person responsible for fire safety in the workplace, and this is usually the fire marshal.

We understand that this can feel like a daunting prospect so our fire marshal training courses in Darlington, are designed to equip those who are responsible for fire safety, with the essential knowledge and skills they need to carry out their role.

Fire marshal training course

This course is suitable for anyone designated the responsibility of fire marshal, or anyone interested in finding out more about the role. The course covers:

  • Awareness of fire hazards
  • The threat that fire poses to people and property
  • The need for emergency procedures
  • Duties and expectations of a fire marshal
  • Fire safety messages in the workplace

At the end of this one-day course, learners will be able to distinguish between the different types of fire extinguishers and know when and how to use them. Attendees will also learn how to use a fire blanket.

We run fire marshal training courses in Darlington, as ‘open courses’ every month, but we can also come to you and deliver training on-site at your premises. Attendees taking part in our live classes benefit from being able to practice with a fire extinguisher using a safe and controlled gas fire.

For those who prefer distance learning, we also offer online training. To engage learners and check their understanding, we include interactive activities and short tests.

Learners are assessed continually throughout the training, and at the end they are issued a certificate of completion.
