Breathing Apparatus

Breathing Apparatus training is an essential component of many every day work activities from firefighting, confined space entry, rescue operations, inspections in chemical, dairy and gas plants to name a few.

Trainees will experience a range of scenarios that will ensure they have the ability to respond and make effective decisions in the rescue process.  They will learn a range of rescue techniques as well as being able to assess when BA is required.

Effective BA training will ensure a safe and successful operation and reduce the potential risk to workers and their organisation.

If you are part of an emergency response team, use BA in the workplace or require refresher training, we have a course that will meet your requirements.

Our training will give you confidence in your ability and your equipment to complete a dangerous job safely.
