Re: Fire Training

I recently completed my Fire Warden Training and my certificate lasts 3 years before I would need to be retrained.
I would state however that all training providers are different and course certificates can vary.

Re: CSCS and CPCS

Morning Rigout

If the operator has a Blue CPCS card that is still in date then this will act as his CSCS card. Once this is up for renewal he will need to re-sit his Touch screen test along with the renewal questions for each category he holds.

hope that helps.

Re: Fire Extinguisher Signs

Thanks for your input Extankman.

It was always my understanding that although foam extinguishers could be used it was just not recommended on electrical.

Re: Directors safety courses? which is best?
