Covered in this course

The Fire Awareness Training in Construction course is broken down into 5 sections.

1) The Nature of Fire

It’s useful to have a good understanding of fire and fire behaviour – how it starts and how it spreads. This section explains “The Triangle of Fire”, “Fire Growth and Development”, and “Fire Spread’’. It particularly looks at the causes and costs of fires on construction sites.

Good Cse easy to understand

I found it too similar to fire safety and awareness with little progression. Repition is good but i did both cses back to back. First cse pretty much answers the questions in the second cse

Just the right amount of information

No summary provided



Very informative

Very informative and easy to follow course.It does say 65% of fires are caused by arson in the training, but in the related question, asks what causes 55% of fires, but other than that very consistent!
