Course Details:

This course takes an in-depth look at fire safety and the importance of understanding surrounding the legislation. In addition to education on fire safety, practices should have a fire risk assessment, evacuation plan, and fire logbook in place. 

This topic should also be covered within staff induction with a thorough walkthrough of the practice, which includes the location of all relevant staff firefighting equipment and a confirmed understanding of practice protocol.

Please be aware that the successful completion of this course does not replace the need for on-site fire safety training, nor does the course provide the delegate with the qualification to perform as either a Fire Warden or a Fire Marshal.

You will be presented with a short presentation followed by an assessment.

If you achieve 80% or more, you pass the course and will receive a printable certificate to place in your CPD folder. If you do not pass, you will have the opportunity to review the content and retake the assessment when you feel confident.
