Fire Extinguisher Technician Refresher Training Due By Dates Extended

Dear Member,  This news affects you if you service fire extinguishers. 

The Coronavirus outbreak is potentially preventing technicians being refreshed in time according to requirements of BS5306-3:2017.

We have received clarification from BAFE allowing training providers to give an extension to the refresher due date.

  1. If the place is booked on a refresher course before the technician’s due date, the current 6-month leeway will be extended by a further 6 months.
  2. If the place on the refresher is not booked before the technician’s due date, a 3-month grace period will be allowed.

In all cases proof will be required that the course was booked according to the terms of these temporary extensions.

These relaxations will allow training providers time to catch up, however we strongly recommend that you plan ahead and where it is possible with your training provider, you should reserve places now for any technicians you have that are due a refresher this year.
