    Where Do You Deliver The Fire Safety Training?

    We can deliver this training at your premises, as long as it's within the UK. Also, we have our own venues in Stoke on Trent, London, Swindon, Epsom & York if you need access to a training room (additional charges will apply). We can also deliver this training virtually using Zoom. However, sessions delivered via Zoom will be theory only and will not include any practicals.

    How long will the training last?

    This training will last 2-3 hours. We give a range of time to account for variable factors such as; underlying knowledge and competence of delegates, class interaction and engagement and reduced delegate numbers. In addition, if a course finishes earlier than the allotted time, it will be due to one of these reasons. However, our trainer will ensure that all learning outcomes have been met.

    Will attending this training make me competent?

    In short, no. No classroom-based training course can give you full competency - be very wary of anyone claiming they can.
