SFJ Accredited Breathing Apparatus Instructor Training now Available!

Updated Skills for Justice accredited Breathing Apparatus Instructor Course meets TB 1/97 and new Operational Guidance Breathing Apparatus


Red One are pleased to announce the introduction of our updated ‘Skills for Justice’ accredited,  Breathing Apparatus Instructor (BAi) course to train both Devon & Somerset FRS staff and personnel from other fire & rescue services.   This in-depth course teaches everything required to become a skilled and confident BA instructor. The aim of this 5 day course is to provide the candidate with all the necessary information and skills to allow them to organise and conduct all aspects of a Breathing Apparatus session. Delegates learn practically by running their own exercises, where they receive feedback from course instructors and from the other course attendees; this enables the students to safely and confidently run an exercise of their own.

Who is this Breathing Apparatus Instructor course for?

The course is aimed at delegates who are required to plan and deliver safe and effective breathing apparatus training. Students will learn through practical exercises, theory based instruction, e- learning and assessments and will cover the following key learning areas:

  • TB 1/97 and the new Operational Guidance Breathing Apparatus
  • Breathing Apparatus Set Description
  • Physiology of Respiration
  • Compressor Safety
  • Set Removal
  • Entanglement
  • Entrapment
  • Risk Assessment
  • Pre/During & Post Exercise Instruction
  • Management of the Risk of Heat Stress during Training

Assessment & certification

This course is built around continuous practical assessment. On successful completion of the course, delegates will receive an accreditation awarded by Skills for Justice. Candidates who successfully complete both the course and their evidence portfolio will be awarded an SFJ Level 3 Award in Breathing Apparatus Instruction.
