A Certificate of Completion is issued on successful completion of the course and you are required to get an 80% pass mark to be deemed as understanding the content. It is recommended that training is conducted every 2 years to stay refreshed. This of course varies from workplace to workplace depending upon your internal policies and procedures.
Face to face versus online fire safety?
Face to face training requires your staff to all down tools at the same time. Using our online course system, through our learning management system, means that staff can learn about fire fighting basics to safely evacuate in the chance of an emergency. The training can also be used as a fantastic way to back up previous face to face Fire Warden training that has been under taken.
