Course Overview

Despite the availability of existing courses in the industry, it was recognised that many of these programs are lacking crucial elements of the modern aviation supervisor role with no current operational experience and failing to address the critical issue of firefighter cancer awareness by still conducting burning on practical exercises.

In response to this, the decision was made to create a course that is relevant to the real-world challenges facing aviation supervisors today. The goal is to bring something new to the market that reflects the current state of the industry and provides participants with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their role.

With a focus on providing a training program that is both informative and engaging, this course is an excellent choice for candidates to achieve the RFFS supervisory qualification with realistic and up-to-date skills and knowledge as an aviation supervisor.

The course is delivered by industry experts who bring a wealth of knowledge and real-life experience to the table.

"The course from start to finish was fantastic, the instructors/tutors were amazing! The course provided me with a great foundation of knowledge to build on as I progress throughout my career. The course was well structured, there were a perfect balance of theoretical and practical whilst always being encouraged to engage in group discussion."

Ryan G.

"I can’t praise John and Simon enough for their engaging and knowledgeable tuition. Throughout the 2 weeks they had a good balance of practical and theoretical elements and constantly encouraged us to participate in group discussion. John and his team are truly leading the way in how the Fire Service/Aviation sector can protect their staff by educating and limiting staff to their exposure to the by products of fire and airborne particulate matter in the aviation sector."

Matt P.

"The course content from start to finish was superb. The knowledge and expertise that Simon and John brought into the classroom and incident ground was truly inspirational. I look forward to future courses with yourselves, thank you for a great course."
