Course Introduction

The Fire Warden online training covers not just what to do in an emergency, but explains the role of fire wardens in spotting and dealing with fire hazards under normal circumstances, to make a fire less likely, and to ensure that in the event of a fire, exit routes are kept clear.

This Fire Warden Online Training course takes on average 60 minutes to complete. The duration will be shorter where the learner is able to answer five out of six questions correctly at the start of lesson 3, as this allows the lesson to be skipped.

Course Content

Overall fire safety is the responsibility of employers and property owners, as specified in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The Order enables the responsible person to appoint competent, named people to assist in the implementation of fire safety procedures. This can include people referred to as fire wardens or fire marshals. This course uses the term “fire warden” but your administrator can edit this to the term used in your organisation.

The online Fire Wardens course explains how a fire starts (using the fire triangle), how it develops, and how it can be extinguished. Questions and interactive exercises, such as matching tasks, are used to prompt the user to think about how to apply the lessons learnt in the course.

Although the basic principles of fire extinguisher use are explained, an online course should not be regarded as sufficient proof of competence to use an extinguisher.  The emphasis of the course is on preventing fires and maintaining escape routes, and in the event of a fire, rapidly clearing the location.  If an organisation’s fire risk assessment recommends that staff are trained in the use of fire extinguishers, this course should be supplemented with hands-on, practical training.

Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Fire Wardens eLearning course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures developed for your organisation, including fire evacuation policies. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost.

Compliance

Why is this course important for compliance?

  • Fire Warden training forms an essential part of compliance training as it ensures that your organisation complies with its legal obligations and requirements.
  • Overall fire safety is the responsibility of employers and property owners, as specified in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The Order enables the responsible person to appoint competent, named people to assist in the implementation of fire safety procedures. This can include people referred to as fire wardens or fire marshals.

Set the pass mark

As training administrator, you can configure the passing score that users need to complete the course. Set your own grade boundaries to ensure your training complies with the standards set out by your organisation.

Who should take this course?

The course is suitable for fire wardens, as an introduction to their role when supplemented with a face-to-face induction to local arrangements, or as an annual refresher when local arrangements have been covered by initial training, and a twice-yearly drill is used to assess ongoing competence. The course is not a guide to those responsible for maintaining fire safety systems, for example facilities departments in charge of testing and maintaining emergency lighting, fire alarm systems and extinguishers.
