Basic Skills Acquisition Course 

This is the first two weeks of training and is a non-residential course. Trainee firefighters will get their first experience of using all ladders, pumps, hose and how to work safely at heights. They will learn how to operate safely at incidents and start to work as a team in demanding situations – it’s a physically and mentally demanding course. After this, they will start on their watch on station for a period of consolidation to continue to work on these skills.
