Insurer recognition of your safe practice in fire arts

In recent years, many insurers have withdrawn from the fire arts industry. Of the few that remain, some now require proof of competence from our organization, called GardeFeu Certification. This is a two-step process:

Step 1 - Course 101 - Safety in fire arts

The Fire Arts Safety 101 Course is recognized by many insurers as an effective method of reducing fire arts risk. This course is offered to everyone, including artists with a problematic history in the fire arts, to give them the opportunity to learn safe practices. This 3-hour theoretical and 1-hour practical course is given in person. It includes a 15-question exam, with a passing grade of 80%.

There are two ways to take this course:

Via an authorized private instructor

Private instructors cover a vast territory, including Toronto, Montreal, Trois-Rivières and Quebec City. These instructors have more flexible schedules, better suited to industry professionals. Rates are at the instructor's discretion, and you should contact them directly. Please note that you will need to open a GardeFeu file at a cost of $35 before your course; your instructor will be able to assist you with this.

 

 

Via GardeFeu

We offer the course on our regular evenings. Please consult the calendar for dates and locations of upcoming courses. The regular price is $75. Classes are posted on GardeFeu Facebook events. These events are created about a week in advance, and are where we post start times and cancellations in case of inclement weather.

Step 2 - Get certified

The GardeFeu Certification recognizes the professionalism and safety attitude of a fire artist.

Prerequisites for this certification are:

  1. Successful completion of the Course 101 Safety in fire arts (Step 1)
  2. No problematic history that could present a fire arts risk (behavior, attitude, impairment, etc.).

This tool enables insurers to identify the safest fire artists and thus reduce the risk incurred when issuing an insurance policy. The certificate is valid for 3 years.
