Fire Marshall Course

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for those who are responsible for overseeing fire safety, designated fire marshals and anyone who needs to know how to use a fire extinguisher.

Why should I take this course?

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 received Parliamentary approval in June 2005 and came into force on 1 October 2006. It is the sole piece of legislation for fire safety issues.

The main focus of the order is fire prevention. Fire certificates have been abolished and have no legal status. The local fire and rescue authority, the Health and Safety Executive, or other relevant local authority will remain the enforcing authority.

Under the Reform Order, the ‘responsible person’ for the premises must carry out a fire risk assessment and nominate a sufficient number of competent persons (fire marshals) to assist in implementing the emergency procedures identified in the fire risk assessment.

What will I learn?

The course will present an insight into fire regulations and general fire precautions. It aims to provide you with the knowledge to be become a fire marshal.
