Section 21:2:a of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order states:

Training must include suitable and sufficient instruction on the appropriate precautions & actions to be taken by the employee in order to safeguard themselves & all other relevant persons on the premises.

Section 21:2:b states that training must be repeated periodically.
Section 21:2 states that training courses must take place during working hours.

Where courses are carried out at the customer’s premises, an outside space needs to be made available for the practical fire extinguisher training which is carried out on a gas tray apparatus. This area should be approximately 15’ x 12’ minimum and suitable for live fire demonstration (i.e. No ignition sources, trees etc. nearby).

Please ensure that there is a suitable parking space near the training area to enable easy transportation of the test appliance.

Each candidate should bring a pen and pad with them to enable brief note taking.

As the presentation is PowerPoint based, please will you indicate what, if any, visual appliances will be made available (i.e. projection onto a screen, large screen T.V. etc.) If none are available, the trainer will bring a computer monitor (approx 19' viewing area) with him.

Cards will be issued at the end of the session with relevant details on them.

Please ensure candidates are on time for the start of training as they may not be able to gain access after it has started. Anyone leaving before the end of the session may not be deemed as fully trained.

If the trainer arrives at the premises as agreed and the course needs to be cancelled (for whatever reason) a cancellation charge will incur.
