This course is designed to train participants on what is required for first response actions in the event of a fire emergency. Training will include the identification of first response fire fighting equipment and the techniques to safely and effectively control or contain the emergency.
Under the Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008 new workers must be trained in first response evacuation instructions within one month of starting. This training is to be renewed every 2 years. If there are changes to the emergency plans or equipment, workers must be retrained within one month of the changes occurring.
Organisations may choose between three methods of practical training — entirely digital, water onto a fire simulator, or water onto a real gas fire (trainer controlled).
Please note this pricing is based on the entirely digital simulator. If you would like to be trained using water and gas fire, please let us know, however it will add approximately $200 to the price of the training to cover the cost of set up and pack down time.
The course includes both theory and practical components and:
- Meets the requirements of the Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008 for first response instruction.
- Provides employees with the skills and knowledge to prevent and respond to an emergency situation.
- Trains the correct procedures and appropriate equipment to use in the event of a fire emergency.
Course provides an understanding of fire awareness and first response including:
- Identification and explanation of fire safety equipment
- Determination of classification and type of fires
- Types of extinguishers and hose reels
- Selection of appropriate fire extinguisher
- Specific dangers associated with first response fire fighting
- Safety procedures when fighting fires
- Instruction and use of fire extinguishers, hose reels and fire blankets, on various type of fires where applicable.
Participants who demonstrate competency by passing both theory and practical assessments will receive a Statement of Attainment for CPPFES2005A Demonstrate first attack fire fighting equipment.
￼Assistance with reading, writing or mathematics
We can provide support in some areas. Where we cannot, we will provide direction to other agencies who may be able to assist.
Queensland Training Services Pty Ltd utilises the BullEx BullsEye Laser Driven Fire Training System. BullsEye senses where the user aims and sweeps a laser training extinguisher and automatically varies the LED driven digital flames in response. The BullsEye’s electronic control system responds to the trainees’ actions, putting the fire out only when the extinguisher is used correctly. Because only laser light is emitted from the training extinguisher, extinguisher training can now be conducted in training rooms, board-rooms, meeting rooms — virtually anywhere.
We can also create realistic training scenarios in any environment. The BullsEye can be positioned in hallways, hotel rooms, ship decks, shop floors, or storage areas to create a variety of realistic training experiences.
State of the Art Trainer Controlled Gas Fire
Queensland Training Services Pty Ltd has also available the BullEx ITS Xtreme fire fighting training system. Come and experience the realism of fighting real fires in complete safety. The ITS Xtreme senses where the trainee aims and sweeps the compressed air and water Smart-Extinguisher and varies the flames automatically. ITS Xtreme features SmartPropsTM that not only provide a realistic flame pattern, but also require that trainees use the proper technique for the flames to be extinguished. This allows your trainees to learn how to effectively use a fire extinguisher without the cost and clean-up associated with using dry-chemical or CO2 extinguishers. This is a win for simulated training and a win for our environment.
Protective clothing including closed in shoes and long pants are recommended for the practical component of the course where water onto a real gas fire is used.
