Fire Marshal Training Courses

Bespoke and open access fire marshal and fire warden training courses. Our experienced trainers give delegates the knowledge and confidence to remain calm and act swiftly in a fire emergency.

Why do you need fire marshal training?

The role of a fire marshal is one of the most important in any workplace. Getting everyone out of the building safely in the event of a fire is a huge responsibility and one that we take very seriously. Designated fire wardens and fire marshals have an important role to play in ensuring compliance with fire prevention and fire safety procedures and legislation.

Our fire marshal training courses are for anyone who has been appointed to the position of fire warden or fire marshal. The training is designed to build knowledge and awareness, and give fire marshals the confidence to act quickly and calmly in an emergency situation.

Delivered by an ex-fire safety officer, sessions combine classroom-based theory with practical, hands-on activities. We use videos, fact sheets, case studies and tasks to keep things interesting and encourage everyone to participate.

Delegates receive a certificate on completion which is valid for three years and confirms compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

We can deliver bespoke fire marshal training for groups of up to 15 people on site at your business premises. If you only have one or two employees needing training our open access fire marshal training courses are the ideal solution.

Nikki North, Asset ManagerAbodus Student Living

Parr Fire carried out an upgrade on our Stadium fire alarm system, which was in-depth and complicated. Parr Fire carried out the work professionally and with minimal disruption. They also provided engineers, at very short notice, when we had issues with damaged fire protection equipment on site. This has proved invaluable to ensure our business and hotel can remain functioning 24/7.
