Fire Safety Officer Course – Delivering to the highest standards

Run on behalf of West Midlands Fire and Rescue Service, the first running of the Fire Service College new one day bespoke Fire Safety Officer CPD course took place in November. Learners attending the course will receive a certificate from the FSC, and we are currently applying to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours recognised by the Institution of Fire Engineers.

The course enables learners to flex their fire safety knowledge by problem solving in unusual and complex premises, or by focusing on the application of a particular guidance or regulatory document, depending on the learning requirements of the client.  The course utilises syndicate based learning with real case studies and using the appropriate guidance. A trainer facilitates the day and a number of differing scenarios are used. The idea being to challenge views about solutions, and to prevent skill fade. Each scenario is then debriefed and solutions discussed.  This challenges the traditional CPD day of being bombarded with information, and gives an opportunity to practice real scenarios with a group of peers but in a safe environment. The course can be run at a time and venue to suit.

Andy Miller, Fire Safety team, WMFS says “Having thrown down the gauntlet to the FSC to challenge and engage the inspecting officers in the WMFS they exceeded all expectations. After creating a bespoke CPD event it was delivered brilliantly and received well by those involved. A great example of how the FSC can tailor training to individual needs and deliver to the highest standards expected in the Fire and Rescue sector.”
