Compartment Fire Based Training

Our non-accredited Compartment Fire Based Training (CFBT) Course is designed for personnel who may be required to enter a compartment to undertake firefighting and rescue operations. Compartment firefighting is one of the most dangerous forms of firefighting due to the inherent risks of flashover and backdraught.

Fire and Safety Australia’s Compartment Fire Based Training (CFBT) course utilises advanced technology to demonstrate real fires and advanced methods of fire extinguishment. Our CFBT facility is transportable anywhere within Australia and our instructors have CFBT experience through Australia’s fire services. The CFBT training is realistic, hands on and comparable to a real life compartment fire.

On successful completion of this course participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance for this course. We have our own portable CFBT training simulators. These can be shipped to your work site and used to train your personnel safely at your own location.
