Course Overview

This course will provide participants with the knowledge, training and practical skills to effectively perform the role and responsibilities of workplace fire warden.

This fire warden training course is suitable for companies and organisations that require selected members of staff to be trained as workplace fire wardens, and will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to effectively manage building emergencies. Participants will learn how to respond to a fire or other incident, raise the alarm, evacuate building occupants, identify themselves as fire wardens and how to assist with post-incident procedures.

Course Outline

The key areas covered by this course include:

  • Identifying and responding to emergency signals and warnings
  • Fire, bomb threat, and other emergencies and their effects on the workplace
  • Human behaviour in fires and emergency events
  • Initiating and controlling the initial emergency response
  • Evacuation and assembly principles and procedures
  • Workplace fireboards and fire equipment location(s)
  • Making arrangements for people requiring assistance
  • Fire warden identification techniques
  • Accounting for all building occupants
  • Evacuation reporting
  • Assessing the incident response and applying learnings to improve workplace emergency procedures.

Course Inclusions

  • Our online course was built from the ground up by industry experts. It is designed to be easy to use, easy to understand and works on multiple devices and platforms.
  • For face-to-face training, we offer practical, hands-on training conducted by an experienced Emergency Services instructor with strong knowledge of relevant legislation and Australian Standards.

Each Trainee Must Provide

Participants must

  • Be at least 15 years of age
  • Have at least a Year 10 level of numeracy, literacy and communication skills
  • Have the ability to read and write English
  • Arrive in suitable attire, including long pants and closed-in shoes if undertaking classroom training.

For online training, participants must:

  • Use a device that meets the minimum System Requirements of Pinnacle’s e-Learning system (we officially support and recommend modern desktop or laptop computers running Google Chrome web browser). Other personal devices (e.g. phones and tablets) may be compatible, but due to the variety available, we do not officially support these devices.
  • Have a stable internet connection.
  • Use a device that can play sound.

The course ran perfectly. I was impressed by not just by the content but by the programming and design that went into it.
