The course helps provide the participant with the necessary knowledge of how a fire can start and develop, how to ensure hot work is carried out safely, and how to extinguish a fire if it should break out.
The course is intended for anyone who needs to carry out hot work or take on the role of fire watch in an area where hot work is being done.
Hot work is work which involves the use of tools that may produce sufficient heat or sparks to start a fire. Examples of hot work include welding, cutting, grinding, angle grinding, soldering, roofing work using an open flame or hot-air equipment, and any other work involving the use of an open flame.
The course ends with an exam. When you have passed the exam and we have received documentation confirming that you have completed a fire extinguishing exercise, you will receive a digital certificate from the Norwegian Fire Protection Association's mobile app "Bvis". Documentation that you have completed the required fire-extinguishing exercise during the last 24 months should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for registration within three months of your completion of the e-learning course.
