In order to become a fire marshal, you need to have completed the relevant fire marshal training. You must have knowledge of how to prevent and fight fires.
There is a government-accredited training course for fire marshals taught by several specialist education providers in the Netherlands. This training course can be completed within a couple of days and once you have the diploma you are a fully qualified fire marshal. This diploma is separate from a first aid diploma. A first aid diploma is not necessary for fire marshals, but it is considered to be a major advantage. If you want to become a 'head fire marshal' you will need to successfully complete an extra training course.
