Fire Extinguisher Training Online

Approved by RoSPA & CPCovers UK & Irish Legislation

This fire extinguisher training online course is designed to give learners an understanding of how a fire extinguish works, how it is to be used and how it extinguishes a fire. Each participant will learn how to use a fire extinguisher in theory and by playing interactive games online. 

 The course will cover the classes for fire, the type of fire extinguisher available, as well as the types of fire that the extinguishers are designed to be used on.

Our interactive training will place you in virtual scenarios where you will have to decide which fire extinguisher you will use to put out a particular class of fire. Get it wrong and there could be consequences, get it right and move on to the next module.

The course is not designed to replace practical training but will enhance your knowledge and understanding, allowing for the practical training to be conducted in shorter durations with better retention of knowledge and skills.


While this Fire Extinguisher Training Online Course focuses on UK Stats and Legislation, most importantly the requirements are all based on European Directives, British Standards and European Norms and are applicable throughout Europe.
