Training Courses

Our programme of courses has been carefully designed to meet the training and development needs of both emergency responders (the technical rescue sector) and industry (organisations operating in hazardous environments such as floodwater, rivers, and rescues from height).

A full range of training courses are available, which reflect the roles personnel and teams may undertake during operational duties. These include specialist courses such as Safe Working Near Water, Co-Worker Rescue at Height, Swiftwater Rescue Boat Operator, and Confined Space Rescue Operator. These courses enable personnel and teams to operate safely and within their specialist roles.

If these courses don’t meet your requirements we also offer customised training courses, which are designed around the needs of your organisation/personnel.

Our courses are available from our training centre in Glyndyfrdwy, in North Wales, at the Tees Barrage in the northeast, and at Staffordshire Fire & Rescue's confined space training centre near Stone, Staffordshire. In addition, where suitable venues exist we can deliver contracted courses at the client’s own location. This often results in significant cost reductions.

Courses are available as either Open Enrolment or Contracted courses. Open Enrolment courses are run on specific dates and can be booked on a per person basis. Contracted courses can be organised for groups by arrangement. Residential and non-residential options are available for both Open Enrolment and Contracted courses.

We are continually developing our training programme, however, if you don’t find what you’re looking for, please contact us and we will do our best to meet your training needs.

Alternatively you can download our Training Course Calendar, which lists all the dates and costs of our training courses for this year.
