A three and a half day course including BAFE assessment for those involved in the maintenance and service procedures on portable fire extinguishers. Book Online Now

Equally, it is appropriate for those requiring an in depth knowledge of portable fire equipment. Although prior knowledge can be useful it is not essential. We have trained many delegates who have no experience at all and still successfully complete the course and assessment.

You do not need to bring along any tools as we provide these for the duration of the course.

Specialist service tools can now be purchased online. We can supply many more tools than those featured so please contact us with your requirements.

Successful delegates upon completing the written and practical assessment (BAFE) will be qualified to service and maintain portable fire extinguishers and will receive an industry recognised qualification and certificate.

We have training centres based near Wakefield, West Yorkshire (North) and Basingstoke, Hants (South).
