Private sector emergency prevention and response

Meeting diverse training needs

Did you know that although we are called the Fire Service College, our training extends beyond purely fire and rescue services. We also provide a diverse range of training to meet the specific requirements of all emergency service responders as well as professionals from industry, Category 2 responders (Utilities and Transport) and other public sector organisations worldwide.

Commercial and public sector

We provide dedicated training for emergency responders across a wide spectrum of commercial and public sector clients. Our instructors are current serving fire officers seconded from individual fire and rescue services across the UK. Like our tutors, they are experts in their chosen fields. We are proud of our world-renowned brand and reputation for supporting our customers locally, nationally and internationally. Our first-class training is designed to equip them in their roles to help save lives.

Operational and leadership training

To be the best, it is important to understand exactly what’s required to train the world’s best emergency responders. That’s why the College works with a number of stakeholders from both the public and private sector. Together we are developing and delivering a common and consistent approach to operational and leadership training within an accredited framework.

With our portfolio of courses, unique incident ground and the professional expertise of our instructional staff we can deliver the highest standards of realistic and effective emergency response training. From firefighter foundation to large scale multi-agency national resilience exercises, we can facilitate a training experience that is second to none.
