What Will You Learn?

Only 13% of Australians know that there are various types of fire extinguishers used to put out fires. There are different classes of fire that are paired with appropriate extinguishers for workplace specific safety. The Fire Extinguisher Training Course familiarises students with the purpose and function of all commonly used fire extinguishers.

  • Class A: These extinguishers are used on wood and paper-based products, plastics and rubber
  • Class B: These extinguishers put out flammable liquids such as chemical products and cleaning agents
  • Class C: Used to put out flammable gases before gas pressure builds
  • Class D: Used to combat fires caused by combustible metals
  • Class E: These extinguishers are valuable in electrical fires and those related to electric circuitry
  • Class F: Used to manage fires caused by cooking oils and fats in kitchen and workplace settings
