It is recommended that the room size should be approximately 20 x 30 feet for a full 12 person course. The room should be large enough to seat all candidates comfortably in a semicircle formation. The floor space in the centre should be clean and uncluttered as this will be used for the practical parts of the course. The trainer will also require a flip chart if one is available.
An outdoor space is also required for letting off a fire extinguisher. The area should be on firm, level ground and must be positioned at least 5m away from any premises. An agreement to use this outdoor area must be made in advance of the course commencement.
