Regulatory requirements for documented safety training

The requirements for training and certification for the performance of heating work are laid down in the insurance companies' safety regulations for heating work. The safety regulations are anchored in section 4-8 of the Insurance Contracts Act. Several other regulations also have liability requirements in connection with this type of work.

The course follows the standards set by the Norwegian Fire Protection Association. In addition to fire theory and regulations, the course focuses on the personal responsibility of hot work practitioners. All participants in the course must have tried to extinguish a fire using different types of extinguishing agents. They will also have seen demonstrations of various hazards in fire protection and extinguishing techniques.

After completing the course, all participants who pass the exam will receive a certificate of competence issued by the Norwegian Fire Protection Association, valid for five years.
