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.


We are currently planning our return to training as we enter the stage 3 recovery phase in line with current advice and reasonable community expectations. Tasmania Fire Service facilities will meet the Worksafe WHS standards including;

In addition, we require all course participants who are feeling unwell to not attend the scheduled course and we will be asking that participants declare that as far as possible that they are of good health. Our standard cancellation policy will be relaxed during this period in the interests of maintaining health and safety to cater for any participant health concerns.

We will contact all clients who have been subject to COVID19 cancellations to offer a course place. Our course schedule is now online, and we are taking bookings for those dates via the website or through direct contact.

Thank you for your patience during this time.
