Warden Courses

We deliver two warden courses, both with classroom delivered theory and a practical component.

  • Wardens – a 3-hour course in the fundamentals of fire and emergency safety, with hands-on fire extinguisher training
  • Chief Wardens – a 2-day course in the theory and application of emergency management procedures, including the responsibilities of being a chief warden and member of an ECO

The courses are delivered at the FRV’s Burnley training facility. For larger groups, the Warden course can also be delivered at your premises.

Practical Training

We deliver two courses designed to equip first responders with the skills needed to combat a small fire. These courses provide hands-on training with portable fire equipment, including fire extinguishers, fire hoses and blankets.

Supervised Activities and Consultancy

We provide specialised consultancy services to support your workplace, site and organisation.

Place of Public Entertainment Safety Officer Course

Businesses, lives and communities can be at risk in an emergency. There is no second chance.

Safety & Compliance

Safety is everyone’s responsibility. The Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Australian Standards for emergency planning in facilities place obligations on property owners, property managers, employers and employees. These regulations and standards lead to compliance regimes that help us ensure everyone’s safety, reducing risk to person and property, and aiding emergency responders to assist us when incidents occur.

FES provide a range of emergency management, consulting and training programs to help you prevent, manage and respond to emergencies. In addition to our popular training courses held at the FRV Burnley Training Facility, we provide consultancy and training services customised to your needs and delivered at your premises. Our services are designed according to the Australian Standards AS 3745-2010 and 1851-2012.

Train with experienced firefighting professionals.

FES don’t take short-cuts with training – we provide you with the knowledge and confidence you need to stay safe. FES trainers are firefighters working in Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV), bringing a wealth of real-life experiences and practical examples to our training programs. When you attend an FES course you can be sure that you are training with the most knowledgeable people in the industry.
