How To Run A Fire Safety Training Company

Fire safety is something that all businesses need to take seriously and something they hire trainers for. This is why many people consider running a fire safety training company. If you are one of these people, there are a number of points you have to consider when you do this.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Fire Risk Assessment Network ( for their input into putting this article together.

Have A List Of Safety Training You Plan To Offer

It is important that you make a list of all the fire safety training that you want to offer. This can include training fire marshals for the business or helping them create a fire safety plan. At this point, there is no limit on the services that you are going to offer. All you need to do is think about what you would like to offer and write it down.

Take The Right Courses

Once you know what training you want to offer, you need to ensure that you are qualified to do this. There are a number of train-the-trainer courses that you can complete offered by government agencies, training companies, and national organizations. These courses will provide you with the training you need to properly train other people.

There are many fire safety organizations that you can contact about training. It is recommended that you have some form of certification from these organizations to show that you are able to complete the training you offer. When you complete these courses, you will often have access to the materials used which can be incorporated into your training courses.

Get The Materials For Your Courses

Once you have all the training you need, you have to start collecting and creating the materials for the training you offer. Some of these materials can be purchased from national organizations. You can also look at creating your own courses if you feel confident with the subject matter.

When gathering your materials, you will also need to get a laptop computer, a projector and a projection screen. Projection software will also be required to provide a slide show during your training courses. This form of training is considered better than paper-based training materials.

Create A Fee Schedule

Before you start marketing your training, you need to create a fee schedule. This will be how you charge the people and companies that you provide training to. Some trainers will charge by the hour while others charge per participant and others charge a flat fee for certain training courses.
