Gain Your Certificate in Fire Fighting With Us

Over the past decade, the country has seen some enormous and difficult wildfires, and those who have worked to quench them are understandably lauded for their ability to stay calm under immense pressure. But firefighting is about more than just picking up a hose. It requires a certain level of personal responsibility and an intense understanding of how different types of fire ignite, spread and are extinguished.

Education about the causes and control of fire is critical, and it is with this in mind that we offer our certificate in fire fighting. It is a five-day course that covers a broad range of practices and data about the prevention and suppression of fire, as well as important information on structural damage and personal safety during fire fighting.

Step Up Your Firefighting Skills With Diamond Protection Training

Two things you’ll really appreciate throughout this training for your fire fighting certificate is that it is all about teamwork and knowledge. At Diamond Protection Training, we provide advanced firefighter training covering a wide range of topics. Our curriculum is designed to give you the knowledge and confidence you need to protect yourself, your colleagues and the community. Our instructors are highly qualified and experienced, and will deliver the most comprehensive fire training available.

All our trainers are experienced firefighters themselves and have often found themselves in difficult and challenging situations. During the course, they will share with you the key understanding they have picked up during their careers and the knowledge about the causes of fire that have helped them stay safe. Course information will include:

  • Basic fire science
  • Understanding of team roles
  • Observational techniques and processes
  • Apparatus preparation, assessment and maintenance
  • Testing and fault reporting of breathing apparatus

The vast majority of the assessment will require you to be physical and engaged, though, and utilise the knowledge you have picked up to make quick, collaborative judgements about courses of action. These practical assessments will include:

  • Door entry techniques
  • Moving around with reduced visibility
  • Appropriate use of breathing apparatus
  • Gas cooling
  • Fire fighting tactics
  • Pump operation
  • Fire and gas observations
  • Search and rescue techniques

At the end of your assessment, you will have had the chance to tackle a fire yourself and formed a deep understanding of the mechanics of fire and its fuel sources. Due to the nature of the course, you must expect physical exertion and some uncomfortable scenarios. We also require you to have completed your first aid training in order to enrol.
