Our Experience With Australian Army

Fast Facts:

  • FSA has trained well over 30 soldiers from the SAS in breathing apparatus training
  • FSA sent a highly qualified instructor to the Perth SAS barracks to conduct the BA training
  • Our breathing apparatus training courses have been tailored to the specific SAS requirements

FSA undertook tailored breathing apparatus training for the Australian Army (SAS) in Perth, Western Australia. The BA training was due to a requirement for SAS members to be trained in the usage of Breathing Apparatus for potential usage during multiple scenarios.

FSA provided tailored breathing apparatus training that included:

  • The theory of how breathing apparatus works and the situations in which it may be required (HOTS)
  • The pre-operational testing and inspection of breathing apparatus
  • Breathing apparatus safety procedures
  • Breathing apparatus donning and doffing procedures
  • Wearing and using breathing apparatus in low visibility conditions
  • Using breathing apparatus in emergency situations

The FSA trainer conducted a comprehensive assessment of all course participants to ensure that all course participants could demonstrate confidence in how to operate the breathing apparatus during both normal and emergency situations.

FSA works extensively with the Australian Defence Force (ADF) across the country and trains hundreds of ADF personnel in training courses such as: breathing apparatus training, confined space entry training, confined space rescue training, tower rescue training, vertical rescue training and many more training courses.
