We pride ourselves in being a standalone organisation in the method in which we deliver accredited training programmes. Our trainers are not only qualified to teach what we offer but they are practising specialists which ensures our course participants receive training from people who actually perform landscape scale prescribed burning.

Our trainers will travel to the most remote locations if necessary and are experienced in delivering programs to all types of learners.

All of our courses are comprised of a large practical component enabling participants to have hands on experience in all aspects of prescribed burning and fire suppression techniques. Our capability to integrate an organisation’s staff training in conjunction with contracted prescribed burning ensures employees gain experience in fire strategies specific to their organisation. Please see our Capability Statement for information on who we have trained and course participants we have subsequently employed on projects.
