Fire Safety Training & Certification

Whether you want fire safety training and certification in as little as two hours with our online training or a more robust, customizable option like you get with our DIY training kits or on-site training, we can help you get the training you want in the way you want it and at a price you can afford.

What are my options for fire safety training?

Training Kits

The kit is for those who want to do the training themselves. It's a fire safety training powerpoint presentation used to train groups of people all at one time in one location. If you need to train a trainer we offer a train the trainer online course.

Online Training

Online is for those who prefer self-paced training from any location or for employers who need to assign and monitor employee training progress and exam scores. Online training is also eligible for bulk pricing discounts for groups of 16+ trainees.

Train the Trainer

Train the trainer courses are online and meant to certify a single individual to use the training kit to train others. The kit is included with the train the trainer online course for no additional cost and is reusable. Results in a lifetime certification.

Onsite Training

Onsite training is for companies looking for hands-on training on your own equipment at your location. We come to you (from Rexburg, Idaho) so travel expenses are included, because of this onsite training is best for groups of at least 5-10+ trainees.

What's in the Fire Safety Training Course?

Our Fire Safety Training Course is regulation-compliant, and our online version fulfills classroom training requirements. Each class contains sections on types of fire safety equipment, fire preparedness, common hazards, and more.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required.

Why do I need fire safety training?

In line with regulations, anyone who works in an environment that has the potential to create fires must receive training prior to operating in the environment on their own.

When it comes to refresher training, the standards in some instances are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.
