How long does a fire warden certificate last?

So how long does a fire warden certificate last? The frequency of fire warden training will depend on the level of risk in a building or workplace.

Common questions to our office are “How often does my fire warden certificate last?” and “How often should we carry out fire training?” All staff and also volunteers in a workplace should receive fire training. The training will be based on the fire emergency plan and also the findings of the fire risk assessment.

Workplaces that would usually have frequent fire training including fire warden training include: Where there is a high life risk such as schools, care home, theatres, tall buildings, hotels etc. Fire warden training in high risk buildings should be carried out every one to two years

Workplaces that would have less frequent fire training could include a small shop and also a small office with a one or two floors. Since this type of building would be considered low risk, training could be carried out every three years or so.

In addition to regular fire warden training, workplaces should also carry out frequent fire drills. For most places of work two fire drills per year may be sufficient but in high risk buildings they should be more frequent. For example fire drills in theatres and care homes may need to be carried out every month.
