Course aim

The purpose of this Program is to ensure that Participants are equiped with the knowledge and skills to respond, with purpose and confidence, to an emergency in a work place setting. 

Learning activities

Instructor led presentations, videos, group discussions, practical demonstrations and exercises. Participants are guided through Simulated interactive "emergency" events to test their skills and knowledge. The Fire Extinguisher is a digital fire training system, called BullsEye, designed by Haagen, the global leaders in fire extinguisher and emergency response training hardware. We also use Laedal’s leading Resuscitation Dummy and Defibrillator system which provides Digital Interactive Reporting, allowing participants to assess their technique and effectiveness.
