Course on maintenance of hand-held firefighting equipment at ERGON
We organise specialised courses to enable you to become a fire extinguisher maintenance technician. Regular inspection and maintenance of fire extinguishers is of great importance in maintaining the overall safety of both employees and members of the public. Only by knowing that our extinguisher has had an inspection carried out can we conclude that it is working properly. It is therefore important to remember that an inspection should be carried out at least once a year. Every extinguisher must be submitted for inspection or conversation. It is a good idea to keep an eye on this, and at the same time to know the place or person who offers maintenance of this equipment. If you are thinking of becoming a fire extinguisher maintenance person - our course is for you. By signing up for the training, you will learn everything you need to know about this specialised equipment.
A few words about the rules
- Fire extinguishers are found in almost every building. It is imperative that they have a manufacturing date on the label. This is sanctioned by the regulations, which must be complied with. If a fire extinguisher does not have this, this is when you go to a maintainer of this type of equipment, who will carry out an inspection. If you want to become a fire extinguisher maintainer, you need to know the regulations that govern the number of fire extinguishers,
- weight of extinguishers,
- certificate of conformity issued by the Scientific and Research Centre for Fire Protection.
It is worth reading the Regulation of the Minister of Internal Affairs and Administration of 7 June 2010 on fire protection of buildings, other construction objects and areas (Journal of Laws of 2010, No. 109, item 719).
This document is responsible for all the rules that need to be known and followed.

We are well aware that we teach a variety of people, sometimes working mornings and sometimes evenings, so our courses are flexible and tailored to our clients' needs. If you consult with us about your time possibilities, we will find a suitable date for you.
We do not have a fixed price list. This is because our prices depend, among other things, on the number of people in the group. The more people, the lower the price. To find out the cost of a course, we encourage you to call us.
