Online Fire Warden Course

This 3.5-4-hour Instructor-Led online course will provide you with the knowledge and training in fire safety as required by the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 and the Fire Services Act 1981.

At the end of this course you will know your duties as a Fire Warden and the actions to be followed during a fire or an emergency. This course will also provide you with the skills to recognise the importance of fire prevention and how to implement a fire prevention ethos within the workplace.

The course will also focus on Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (PEEP), record keeping, fire drills etc. We promote the culture of prevention rather than cure.

Participants will be given the opportunity to complete a practical on our premises (29 Lesson Street Upper, Dublin 4) once the Covid-19 crisis has rescinded. This practical will include evacuating a building, discharging fire extinguishers and how to use a fire blanket (Please note, a real fire is not used in the practical).
