The QFES has adopted a holistic approach to training that combines training in physical skills with the overall professional development of fire officers in management and operational procedures.
After conducting extensive international research into the best firefighter training methods, the QFES developed a Live Fire Training program to teach firefighting techniques under realistic but safe conditions. This gives Queensland firefighters a better understanding of fire behaviour, increasing safety for firefighters and the community.
Firefighters are trained at the newly-built Queensland Fire and Rescue Academy - one of the best purpose-built firefighter training facilities in the world.
This Academy, along with regional and on-site training is also available for commercial customers wanting the best training and emergency management consultancy for their organisation.
