Gain the knowledge and skills to effectively use a fire extinguisher, through our traditional Live Fire Extinguisher Training. This course is designed for anyone, from those that have never been trained to use a fire extinguisher, to those that just need a refresher.

Key learning outcomes

  • Understand the basic principles of fire science and the classes of fire.

  • Demonstrate how to correctly use a fire extinguisher.

  • Understand and implement a fire response plan

Participants get to put their learning to the test and put out a real fire from our live fire simulator.

Why choose live fire training?

  • Practice using a real fire extinguisher on a real flame.

  • Get outdoors and out of the classroom.

  • Put out a real fire in a controlled safe environment.

Once training is complete you can rest assured that you have met your legal fire safety training requirements, and all participants will receive a certificate. We recommend that participants take part in a refresher course every two years.

Is fire extinguisher training mandatory?

The owners of buildings that require an Evacuation Scheme must have, and practice, an evacuation training programme so building occupants can escape to safety during a fire emergency. The training programme must include details of how the occupants are trained to use any firefighting equipment in the building. Therefore, it is important that occupants of the building are trained to use a fire extinguisher.

In addition to the above, and under the Health & Safety at Work Act a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) has a primary duty of care to ensure the health and safety of workers while they are at work in the business. Find out more on the Worksafe website.
