Small fire extinguishing equipment course

The small fire extinguishers training course is intended to become acquainted with the existing small fire extinguishers and the application of these substances. In addition, you will be introduced to knowledge of fire classes and fire risks. Through practical exercises we try to prevent a shock reaction in a practical situation. The student knows afterwards with which extinguishing agent and how to extinguish in a safe manner.

This course is a requirement in the Petrochemical sector. The target groups include employees who work in installations, workshops or laboratories on a (petro) chemical industrial site.

If desired, the practice can be given at your location for better integration of the emergency response organization and for responding to matters that are relevant to practice.

Topics covered are:


  • burning and extinguishing;
  • fire classes A, B, C;
  • portable fire extinguishers;
  • fixed extinguishing systems;
  • causes of fire;
  • fire prevention;
  • alarms.


  • extinguishing exercises on various objects;
  • prevention measures.

The objective is that the student makes the right decision at the right time, can work safely with all extinguishers and fight a starting fire in a safe manner.
