In addition, our courses are based on government fire booklets and British Standards. We also include advice from London Fire Brigade to help you comply with fire safety law.

Since we do not limit the numbers attending in house courses, we are very popular. However, we do limit the numbers attending any outside practical session to less than twenty persons. This is so we can maintain a safe environment for your staff. If you would rather have more persons have hands on extinguisher training, we can provide multiple sessions.

Our trainers have all worked as senior personnel or trainers in the fire service. This provides us with a great insight to what fire inspectors look for during an audit. Consequently, our courses have been tailored to help you comply with the law but to do so with minimum cost.

Our training team will provide certificates of attendance for all of those who complete the training. We can also send online booklets about your workplace to assist further learning.

Fire marshal training London in house programmes

Fire marshal training London in house programmesfire marshal training London

So today we carried out a great fire marshal training London programme for a fashion group. The course was attended by five fire marshals and also the Responsible Person for company.

The company takes fire safety seriously and recently also asked us to provide a fire risk assessment for their building. We noted there were no “out of hours fire” procedures during the assessment and hence asked for a new procedure during the training. The manager was aware of the issue but had not put in a new plan.

Managers should note all of the findings of a fire risk assessment and act on them as soon as possible. While a fire service visit just after an FRA inspection is unlikely it is possible. Managers must be able to show that they working through any points raised and therefore improve fire safety.

The course today was one a number carried out since the business was started three years ago. Even in this short time, staff have changed, hence the need for new fire marshals on a regular basis. Todays course also included ensuring who had responsibility in a multi-tenanted building. Some tests are carried out by the Landlord and  others by the manager of the workplace.

Our team can provide an adapted fire marshal course for your team. Either call us or email for more details.

So what are the fire marshal training costs a manager can expect to pay? This depends whether they have either in house training or send staff on open courses.

If you want to pay less for an in house course select a non practical course for just £345+VAT. Any number of persons can attend for the same fee. If you would rather have a course with a fire extinguisher practical costs are £545+VAT. The fee is higher because we have two staff and use materials during the training.

Managers can also pay less if they are able to send staff to an open course. Our fee for an approved course is just £75+VAT per person. This maybe cheaper than our team attending your site. If you have less than eight persons on the course the total fee will be cheaper.

This article refers to fire marshal training fees in London, Essex, Kent, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. If you are based further afield, we will probably have to charge a small transport fee and overnight costs.
