  4. Fire Extinguisher Webinar [Hybrid Training]

Delivered by webinar and accessible from anywhere in New Zealand, this course supports in gaining the knowledge in the operation of different types of fire extinguishers and fire suppression techniques used in the workplace. Theory element only.

This webinar covers the theory element of working with Fire Extinguishers properly. It provides you with an understanding of the different types of fire extinguishers and new developments relating to effective fire suppression, while building the foundation of knowledge required to complete the practical element of Fire Extinguisher training at a later point.

This webinar covers theory only. Due to the requirements of the associated unit standard, attendees will not be awarded a unit standard until they have completed an accompanying practical session. Hybrid training allows the attendee more control over the time required to achieve the unit standard by allowing them to break up the theory and practical elements. The practical component must be booked within 12 months of completing the theoretical component, and the cost indicated here covers both elements of the training.
