Who can be a Fire Warden?

In simple terms, anyone can become a Fire Warden. You can begin our Fire Warden Training course at any level and with no previous knowledge. From carers to office workers, we can facilitate your Fire Warden training to suit your workplace.

We group our courses into sectors so that if a smaller number of your team is attending, they get the most appropriate training for your business, regardless of your location or size. An example of this is the childcare and nursery warden and marshal training that we offer, where we focus on employees’ duty of care and responsibilities when it comes to evacuating small children.

We provide all the information and knowledge to ensure you will be a skilled and competent Fire Warden at the end of it.
