Portable Fire Extinguisher Recharging + Maintenance

Course overview and learning outcomes

There are an estimated several million fire extinguishers in the UK. The vast majority need to be maintained in accordance with BS 5306-3:2009.  A proper maintenance regime not only provides assurance that an extinguisher should work when required, but may also help to show that an organisation is fulfilling statutory obligations to manage its fire safety properly.

Whether you have a single site, or multiple sites, this course will allow you to undertake your own servicing and maintenance which can result in significant cost savings.

The programme is externally examined by a BAFE examiner, and you will undertake both a theory and practical test.

This is a four day course, with day 4 being the exam day.

  • Extinguisher construction
  • Types of fire and smoke spread

  • Preparing a report for the responsible person
