The Fire Safety Bootcamp is available to anyone living in the South Wales region and is the only scheme of its kind in the area. 

It is a fully funded course, with all training costs being met by Welsh Government, through Coleg Y Cymoedd. 

Learners do not need to be employed, and there are few pre-requisites for inclusion. 

Whilst the focus of the course is to prepare delegates for a career in designing, installing and maintaining Fire Detection and Alarm Systems, it also covers general fire safety, and will raise awareness of the dangers of fire, the steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of a fire starting and what to do in the event of fire. 

It provides an overview of workplace fire safety legislation, the development and spread of fire, actions in the event of fire and fire extinguisher theory as well as an introduction to the roles of the Fire Warden, Incident Controller and the Fire and Rescue Services. 

The course also introduces delegates to the principles of electrical theory, with practical exercises and assessments at the heart of the course delivery. 

 Duration: 10 Weeks 

 8 weeks will be spent at The Fire Industry Training Academy in Caerphilly, with an additional 2 weeks being spent gaining onsite experience with a local employer. 

For the duration of the course, each candidate will be paid a training grant allowance of £150 per week. This grant is paid directly by the Academy on a weekly basis for each completed week by the delegate. 

Start date: March 2024 

Who is this course for? 

The course is open to anyone who may be considering a career in fire safety or is looking for the first steps into an associated electrical trade. 

Pre-requisites
