Training courses

We specialise in training and development courses aimed at other emergency response providers, as well as commercial and public organisations, educational establishments and residential care homes. We provide a range of courses and training solutions to suit the needs of your organisation.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that organisations must provide staff fire safety training. Where appropriate, fire wardens can also be selected to receive additional training.

Ensuring that staff are fully trained in fire prevention and safety will help to protect you, your staff, and your business, as well as ensuring that you comply with legislation.

We have been delivering these courses in the UK, Republic of Ireland and Denmark for more than ten years.

Our instructors have gained significant knowledge and experience from working with partners in Spain, France, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Slovak Republic, the USA, and South Africa.

The training we deliver is suitable for all fire and rescue employees. It is also suitable for those working in land management, who may be called upon to assist with wildfire suppressions, and may be involved in prescribed burning.

Prescribed burning is the process of planning and applying fire to a predetermined area, under specific environmental conditions, to achieve a desired outcome.

Our courses

  • A two-day wildfire suppression course (at your premises)
  • A five-day advanced wildfire suppression and wildfire incident management course (held in Northumberland)
We can also develop bespoke courses to meet your specific needs.

We have developed a very successful training model which has proven successful in multiple countries. Our courses are so successful as they are designed to include a variety of teaching methods, including:
  • theoretical classroom sessions
  • discussion of real life case studies
  • table top exercises to confirm understanding
  • practical sessions in the field (e.g. field skills and map reading skills)
During our five-day courses, we invite guest speakers who work outside of the fire and rescue sector to lead short sessions. They provide valuable insights on wildfires from the point of view of other stakeholders.
Yes, we have been delivering wildfire training courses externally since 2009. Therefore we are recognised as the UK’s leading fire and rescue service for wildfire training and operational policy issues.

We have engaged extensively in partnerships working at local, national, and international levels. This helps to improve cooperation, understanding, and awareness. We have been part of the Northumberland Fire Group from the outset since 2005.

Chief Fire Officer Paul Hedley is currently the lead officer for wildfire in the UK for the National Fire Chief’s Council (NFCC). He also sits on the England and Wales Wildfire Forum (EWWF), a national strategic advisory body to UK fire and rescue services and rural agency partners.
