Benefits of the Fire Safety Training: 

There are a number of benefits to AMTD’s Level 1 Fire Safety Training course, including the following:

  • Workplaces become safer places to be due to the increased knowledge of the people who work there.
  • Most fires are preventable and by training your staff they can significantly contribute to preventing fires in their workplace
  • Ensures that employers or responsible persons  comply with the Regulatory Reform(Fire Safety) order 2005 ( Often referred to as Fire Safety Order )
  • Delivered by a retired Fire Officer who shares lots of his experience to ensure learners are engaged with the course.

This course costs: £450 for a group of up to 8  learners delivered at your venue (conditions apply*) as we feel this course is best-delivered face-to-face, rather than being an online course.

*Conditions – within 20 miles of BB1 – our trainers will travel some distance but costs are negotiable so please contact us at the following email address to discuss your requirements.

  • When I needed a first-aid certificate I wanted to use a local firm... What really impressed me was the quality of the training and for half the price of St john ambulance who I used last time! I have recommended them to loads of my contacts as I think they were excellent value for money and total professionals!
