Breathing Apparatus Training Course
SAQA US ID 242852, 'Use a self-contained breathing apparatus'
This breathing apparatus training course will enable the learner to use a
self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) safely and effectively during
normal occupational assignments and emergency operations. Training in
the correct use of breathing apparatus will give the learner fundamental
knowledge and skills to ensure that respiratory protection is not
intentionally compromised, and that they retire from hazardous areas
before their air is depleted.

dedicated page for the Breathing Apparatus Training course.


•  Our insipient/basic fire training courses consist of workshops in which
   formal instruction on various aspects of fire theory are given including
   fire prevention, procedures for employees in the event of a fire, under-
   standing the nature and chemistry of combustion, fire behaviour, the
   sources and classes of fire and extinguishing methods. Practical
   demonstrations, using the appropriate basic firefighting equipment are
   conducted and exercises and assessment opportunities are given as
   part of the fire fighting training.

•  Learners are given the opportunity to put out a fire themselves using the
   appropriate firefighting equipment. Training in insipient stage fire fighting
   includes selecting the correct type of fire extinguishers for a specific
   class of fire. Basic training in fire fighting also equips learners to use a
   wall-mounted reel hose.

•  The training manual consists of modules. Learning objectives are stated
   for each module in the manual and learners are presented with course
   information and summaries to assist them achieve these objectives. The
   manual also contains self-assessment activities, which will help
   learners to monitor their progress.

   learner is required to extinguish a fire within a controlled environment.
   Every effort is made to ensure that assessment practices are relevant,
   transparent and fair.

   participate in the fire competitions held every two years.
