Portable Fire Extinguisher Training

FPS inspector leads a fire extinguisher class.

Fire extinguishers are only valuable safety devices when you know how to use them. This is why we offer training in the use of fire extinguishers, and provide information on this website to help you learn about the ABCs of fire extinguishers, and how to perform visual inspections and decide whether or not to attempt to fight a fire. We encourage you to register for one of the fire extinguisher training sessions below, and test your fire extinguisher knowledge after reading the information provided all about fire extinguishers on this site.


To register for fire extinguisher training visit UTLearn, the University’s employee training management system. 

To register for the fire extinguisher training, login to UTLearn (EID required) and search for class FF 205.

Visit the website for information or questions about UTLearn , or contact the UT Service Desk.

Self-Registration for Students

The University of Texas training management system, UTLearn is accessible only by active UT Austin employees (faculty, staff, or student employees). However, the self-registration process allows nonemployee students to register with and access UTLearn to complete their required safety training. Access to this functionality is currently limited to only students required to complete safety training.

Note: If you're a student, you need to register to use UT Learn. If you're not currently registered, please see your PI / Lab contact.

Supervisors who manage student safety training should contact Francisco Gutierrez pgutierrez@austin.utexas.edu to request the URL for the self-registration process.
