Warden Courses

We deliver two warden courses, both with classroom delivered theory and a practical component.

  • Wardens – a 3-hour course in the fundamentals of fire and emergency safety, with hands-on fire extinguisher training
  • Chief Wardens – a 2-day course in the theory and application of emergency management procedures, including the responsibilities of being a chief warden and member of an ECO


The courses are delivered at the FRV’s Burnley training facility. For larger groups, the Warden course can also be delivered at your premises.


Practical Training

We deliver two courses designed to equip first responders with the skills needed to combat a small fire. These courses provide hands-on training with portable fire equipment, including fire extinguishers, fire hoses and blankets.


Supervised Activities and Consultancy

We provide specialised consultancy services to support your workplace, site and organisation.


Place of Public Entertainment Safety Officer Course

The Safety Officer course is a specialist course designed for safety officers at public events. The course is registered with the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority, and managed in collaboration with the Victorian Emergency Management Training Centre (VEMTC).

COVID-19 Advisory

Fire Equipment Services is committed to community safety and protecting you and your assets as our highest priority. We are actively monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation, taking proactive steps and following official advice issued by the Victorian and Australian governments.

Temporary suspension of all training courses and consultancy services

The FES commitment to our clients is to deliver a professional and engaging experience, with practical and innovative approaches to course delivery and consultancy services. Our clients tell us that their learning experience is enhanced with our approach of utilising FRV operational firefighters to deliver these services. The technical expertise, skills and experience is highly sought after.

In light of recent developments with COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to withdraw all FRV operational firefighters from delivery of courses and consultancy. This decision has been made to prioritise the availability of our emergency services personnel during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We know this will cause some disruption for our clients. As this is a rapidly changing environment, we will continue to work with government and other stakeholders, and plan for the eventual resumption of regular training delivery.

If you have any questions or concerns about FES delivery of training courses, please contact our training department on 1300-855-163 or by email at training@fes.com.au.

Practical Experience

Train hands-on with fire extinguishers, hoses and blankets

Training by experienced firefighters

Businesses, lives and communities can be at risk in an emergency. There is no second chance.

Safety & Compliance

Safety is everyone’s responsibility. The Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Australian Standards for emergency planning in facilities place obligations on property owners, property managers, employers and employees. These regulations and standards lead to compliance regimes that help us ensure everyone’s safety, reducing risk to person and property, and aiding emergency responders to assist us when incidents occur.

FES provide a range of emergency management, consulting and training programs to help you prevent, manage and respond to emergencies. In addition to our popular training courses held at the FRV Burnley Training Facility, we provide consultancy and training services customised to your needs and delivered at your premises. Our services are designed according to the Australian Standards AS 3745-2010 and 1851-2012.

Train with experienced firefighting professionals.

FES don’t take short-cuts with training – we provide you with the knowledge and confidence you need to stay safe. FES trainers are firefighters working in Fire Rescue Victoria (FRV), bringing a wealth of real-life experiences and practical examples to our training programs. When you attend an FES course you can be sure that you are training with the most knowledgeable people in the industry.
