FFT Practical Fire Extinguisher Training


Who Should Attend?

This course is ideal for all personnel to give an insight into the correct procedures for operating an extinguisher to combat a small fire. In an emergency, anybody who is close to a small fire may be required to extinguish it to prevent further damages, so it makes sense to have full competency within a workforce to ensure this is possible.



This course allows delegates to become familiarised with the operation of an extinguisher, and also gives knowledge on types of fire and which extinguishers to use on them. This allows for peace of mind and would ensure confidence in using extinguishers should a situation arise.

Using our very own Fire Extinguisher Training Unit, used for fire safety & awareness courses that incorporate extinguisher training.

Many people, although aware of fire extinguishers and their uses, often do not know the correct classifications for extinguisher usage, or have never used an extinguisher.

This course covers aspects including:

  • Class A fires – water extinguisher
  • Class B fires – foam extinguisher
  • Fire involving electricity – carbon dioxide extinguisher
  • Class F – fire blanket
  • Electrical component fire – simulation of how an electrical component may react

We can deliver this training course, anywhere in the country, or in our training facility. – please contact us to discuss your specific training needs

A few words form our Managing Director – Darren Shelton

Further to the Prime Minister’s statement to the nation on 23 March 2020 and the restrictions put in place by the British Government and Worldwide, we have decided to advise that we will now pause all booked face-to-face training for the foreseeable future.

While the British government have not released specific guidance for our industry, we feel that this can help to slow the spread of COVID-19 as much as possible. Our aim up until this time has been to continue to teach important skills in the safest way possible. While this message is exceptionally difficult to give, we are in unprecedented times and the safety and welfare of attending delegates and that of our own staff is paramount!

We can confirm, that we will resume business as usual at the earliest opportunity and reschedule any cancelled dates once we have been given the all clear. Should it be required we can still be contacted on our mobiles whilst we of course, observe the relevant guidance on social distancing and we are adapt to home working.
