    Fire Training Courses  

We offer a number of Fire training courses for the business community which aim to improve awareness and encourage delegates to give greater consideration to fire safety at their place of work.

All courses involve theoretical input combined with realistic practical training activities. Our experienced instructors actively encourage delegate participation, presenting all attendees with the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience ina safe training environment.

Training sessions can be delivered at our purpose-built Training Centre in Maresfield close to the town of Uckfield, or at the customers' own premises. Our Training Centre's facilities include comfortable modern teaching rooms and purpose-built practicaltraining facilities, which include real live fires for effective and engaging training activities.

Practical Fire Extinguisher training can also be delivered at our customers' sites with our unique mobile fire extinguisher training unit. This equipment produces highly controlled live fires which are totally safe, fuelled by clean-burn propane gasand therefore do not produce any smoke. The fires will not leave any residue at the training venue.

Our customer-focused approach to training delivery ensures that whichever option is selected, customers can be assured that the training will suit their specific requirements. All courses can be tailored to meet your specific needs.
