This course provides any employee with underpinning knowledge of how fire occurs in the workplace, how it might spread and most importantly how to identify the best extinguishing media to extinguish it!

It provides practical hands on training to encourage and instil confidence in any attendee to be proficient in the use of Firefighting media.
