Overview

Introduction

Current fire safety legislation requires a risk-based regime in organisations with a nominated competent person overseeing fire safety management – Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005/Fire (Scotland) Act 2005/Northern Ireland Fire Safety Regulations 2010.

This prestigious course has been designed specifically for individuals employed in a wide range of industrial and commercial backgrounds in both public and the private sector and organisations who require in-depth, practical training in fire risk assessment.

This course ensures that on completion delegates feel competent and confident to carry out fire risk assessments, produce fire safety reports and fire emergency plans of small to medium size premises in line with current legislation.

About the course

A highly practical 5 day in-depth course with multi-media presentations, working on plan drawings and practical exercises, using software and laptops provided; held on a public or in-house basis for up to 12.

More in-depth than the 3 Day In-house Course, it forms part of the Fire Manager Certificate giving delegates the opportunity, at a later date, to enhance their knowledge and to be able to apply for Fire Technician grade with the Institute of Fire Safety Manager (IFSM) or Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE) subject to validation. 

What's included?

First class training and instruction from qualified fire-safety professionals.
