Fire Team Training: Refresher

Your Fire Team have been trained, but when was the last time these were tested in a live situation?  Have you noticed bad habits developing in the exercises you run as part of team development?

So that your Fire Team is prepared for a real fire situation, SA Safety recommend that members refresh their core skills with onsite and fire behaviour training, at least every two years, during which our experienced instructors will identify and assess any training requirements needed, and focus the course content accordingly. The duration of this course is between 2-5 days, dependent on your requirements.

As a valued customer we are also able to attend your regular Fire Team development days to advise, facilitate and assess any exercises. This will enable us to identify and discuss with you any additional training requirements you may have.
