Emergency Services Training

An elite, purpose built platform that delivers specialist Emergency Services training. The Emergency Services Training Centre has 22 years of unparalleled experience.

We are based on a 4.5 acre site close to J1 of the M53 with excellent transport links to the M56 and M6.

All our instructors and tutors hold an A1 Assessors and Internal Verifier qualification and most hold a Cert. Ed. (Certificate of Education).



Total Immersive Training

The Emergency Services Training Centre has a series of purpose built and impressive training rigs which allow for realistic simulation, total immersion and evaluation. A major incident can be challenging at the best of times, but when you are dealing with a multi casualty incident, debris, glass, alarms sounding, smoke and flames, could these distractions cloud your judgement? Would this affect your ability in the decision making process?


Gas, Oil and Offshore Fire Fighting Facility

The Emergency Services/Offshore Training Centre has some pretty impressive Fire Training Rigs.

The Fire House has a control room which can monitor the students during training with infra red and thermal imaging the environment can be recorded to assist in the debriefing process. The building also  has a simulated bridge allowing for realistic simulation of maritime incidents and command structure

The burst flange fire rig has an arrangement of quarter turn valves and turn key valves that allow the students to work on large bore pipes which simulate the gas and oil industries environment. Very few facilities can replicate this environment to this standard.

The training pool is one of the deepest of its kind in the UK allowing for realistic training.
