A basic level of fitness is required to complete the practical elements of the course. There is no pre-learning required.
The aim of this course is to give the participants the basic knowledge and skills through theoretical and practical training to prevent fires, conduct initial and appropriate judgement when evaluating a fire, manage evacuation of personnel to ensure all are safely evacuated and accounted for in the event of an unmanageable fire and, if it is judged to be safe, to efficiently extinguish an initial fire by using basic hand held firefighting equipment.
The course will include videos, group discussions, trainer led presentations and practical demonstrations of firefighting equipment and physical use of it.
Delegates will be assessed throughout the course with a short, written exam upon completion.
Trainer to delegate ratio of 1:12 for theory elements and 2:12 for practical sessions.
Upon completion of the course you will be presented with the original certificate.
