Comprehensive one day fire safety training now available from the authors of the sector-led guide "Fire Safety in Purpose-Built Blocks of Flats". In addition to covering the technical content of the guide, the authors will give a unique insight into the background and thinking behind the approach taken in the guide.

A must for those involved in the management, assessment and enforcement of fire safety in purpose built blocks of flats.


This IFE-approved 3.5 day course has been developed for delegates who do not have a background in fire safety. It is therefore a useful starting point to the basic principles of fire safety.  Topics covered include the principles of means of escape and fire alarm systems. It is delivered over 3.5 days and includes an examination on the fourth day.  Generally, delegates would undertake this course and undertake the fire risk assessment course at a later date.

We sometimes combine the Level 1 course with the standard fire risk assessment course, making a comprehensive five day course. This is a relatively intensive five day course, with two course examinations on a further (sixth) day. Please contact us for further details about delivering these courses in-house.
