Training

 

Within the Rural Fire Service (RFS) there are both operational and support roles. Training is guided by the Volunteer Learning and Development Framework (VLDF)​.

Firefighting is a hazardous job and there are many risks involved in protecting your community against fire. The VLDF links training to volunteer roles. By aligning courses to RFS roles, volunteers have the opportunity to develop and maintain the specific knowledge and skills necessary to perform their role within the brigade. Training offered is both accredited training (nationally recognised) and non-accredited training (recognised only within Queensland Fire and Emergency Services).

While the initial focus for volunteer training is on preparing volunteers for the a​ specific role in the brigade, we also ensure you can undertake a range of training that will assist you in your everyday life.​
