Fire Warden Certification Classes (High Rise)

The monthly High-rise Fire Warden Certification class has moved online. Building managers, management employees and tenants needing Fire Warden Certification training may now do so by visiting our online course at https://www.houstonhighriseflst.org/courses-list/.

The online Fire Warden Certification course is free and can be taken anytime. The course information is not specific to any building and requires building management to supplement the training with their building information.

Building managers, management employees and, tenants who would like live training may request a Fire Inspector/Instructor with the Life Safety Bureau's High-rise Fire and Life Safety Team to provide the training.

The Fire Inspector/Instructor will conduct the training outside his/her regular work hours on an overtime basis. You may request the live training class through our contact form found https://www.houstonhighriseflst.org/contact-us/. Please allow up to 24-48 hours for a response.

A City of Houston permit fee is required to schedule a Fire Inspector/Instructor.


You may have a City of Houston Fire Marshal-approved consultant perform the training.

The process to receive an approved Fire Safety Plan consists of the three following essential training elements conducted by persons, institutions, or companies approved by the Fire Marshal according to regulations established by the Fire Marshal: a consultation with the building management, an authorized certification training for Fire Wardens and building employees, and a fire drill supervised by persons, institutions, or companies approved by the Fire Marshal.
