Code 2: Key Performance

Did you know we offer Fire Marshal Training courses in partnership with Tactical Tuition?

Many organisations neglect Fire Marshall Training in their workplace, school or group. Before anything else, we believe it is important to establish the need for completing this course before we explore how the course works.

What Is A Fire Safety/Marshall Course?

Key Performance Training are in close partnership with Tactical Tuition, who are a leading Oxfordshire based Health and Safety training company. This means we can offer Fire Marshal Training courses that result in a nationally recognised Level 2 qualification for all successful delegates.

The course is classroom / theory based and can be completed in the space of 1 day (6 hours). Within the classroom, delegates will learn the role of the necessary designated Fire Warden and how they can go on to prevent fires in their organisation.

Who Is The Course Designed For?

 Two questions you may be wondering:

  • Could a Fire Warden course be suitable for you?
  • How should you decide who should be the designated Fire Marshall for your organisation?

 The 3 main people who should complete this course to follow the HSE guidelines are:

  1.  Anyone in your organisation who has a direct responsibility to oversee Fire Safety in the workplace. (If no one in your organisation has this responsibility, you are not meeting the legal HSE requirements).
  2. The designated Fire Marshall/Wardens of your company should complete a training course. This needs to be refreshed every 3 years to ensure the Fire Marshall’s knowledge is up to date and they are best equipped to deal with any emergency scenarios.
  3. Anyone who needs to know how to use a Fire Extinguisher.
