About On Request training Courses


TasFire Training provides regular public course schedules in each region, however on request we can provide any of our training courses for your organisation, if required at your site.

The benefits of training at your site include team building and a shared understanding amongst your people of preparation and preparedness for emergencies. Logistically it may be easier to gather your employees to attend training in a group and our training may compliment other activities you are planning with your employees.


On-request courses include specific industry relevant training like; use of breathing apparatus for employees who need to wear breathing apparatus to enter confined spaces,  handle chemicals in their day to day functions or enter smoke during an emergency.


Your workplace may have emergency response teams whose role it is to respond on site to emergency incidents such as fire, chemical splits or entrapment. TasFire Training instructors have many years’ experience in developing and nurturing the skills of teams who are the on-site first response, this is critical particularly in isolated workplaces.


TasFire Training can also deliver fire safety information sessions for larger groups. These sessions are often used in the health care industry for staff induction and complement our Chief Warden, Warden and Fire Extinguisher courses.


TasFire Training can provide safe supervised and practical hands on training in the use of portable fire extinguishers, this includes the use of fire extinguishers, fire blankets and hose reels. Our portable extinguisher training prop can be used at most workplace sites and this makes it easy and cost effective to bring the training to your site. Our training prop is environmentally friendly and operates using LPG to fuel the training fire and our extinguishers do not make a mess or leave a powder residue.

To request training please contact your nearest regional training consultant.


Due to the rapidly evolving situation with the Covid-19 virus and the advice to avoid non-essential gatherings, along with the stringent recommendations by the Federal Government if gatherings do take place, TasFire Training has taken the decision to suspend training courses for the immediate future.


Currently we are cancelling courses on a week by week basis and will be monitoring current advice and reasonable community expectations. We will contact all clients who have already been sent course confirmations and we will re-contact once we have some certainty about the environment. If you haven’t yet heard from us we will understand if you wish to cancel your booking in the current environment, there will be no penalty.


We will be guided by both Federal and State Government Health policy particularly in regard physical isolation to prevent person to person spread.  We wish you good health in this unprecedented time and will continue to work with our clients and the community to get through this situation.


Please contact me at j.young@fire.tas.gov.au  if you wish to discuss.
