Firesafe and Trainor are now launching a completely new offer for Hot Work certification that includes practical firefighting exercises. The course package contains e-learning course and practical firefighting exercise. It makes it easy to get complete heat working certificate. The duration of the e-learning course is 4 hours, and the firefighting exercise takes about 1 hour to complete.

Firesafe has 17 locations where you can take the required firefighting exercise.

In order to get the best possible benefit from the training, we recommend that the e-learning course is completed before the practical exercise. In order to be issued a certificate by the Norwegian Fire Protection Association, the practical extinguish exercise must be completed within 3 months after passing the e-learning course. If the e-learning course is not completed before the firefighting exercise, the e-learning course can be completed afterwards.


The course will give the participant the necessary knowledge about how a fire can start and develop, measures that must be taken to be able to perform hot work in a safe way, and how to put out a fire if it still happens.

Target group

The course is for anyone who will perform hot work or be in the role of fire watch in an area where it is carried out hot work.

Hot work is work where you use tools that emit enough sparks or heat for a fire to occur. Examples of hot work are welding, cutting, grinding, angle grinding, soldering, roofing with an open flame or hot air tool and other use of open flames.
