Fire Safety Online Training

New online versions of the Fire Stewards and Fire Coordinators Training is available via the LEARN platform.

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions the Fire Safety Unit has cancelled all face to face fire safety training at the University of Edinburgh until further notice. In the meantime we have introduced new online versions of our Fire Stewards and Fire Coordinators Training which are open to all University Staff and are available online via the LEARN platform. Both courses can be accessed by following the guidance below.
