Firefighter training

Firefighter training

You've passed the assessment tests and interview and now training starts. Here's what to expect.

Training as a firefighter takes about four months on an intensive course held mainly at our specially equipped training centre in Southwark, next door to our new Brigade headquarters. Here you'll be taught basic firefighting skills like ladder safety, hose laying and using breathing apparatus.

You'll also learn about fire safety and the importance of communicating these messages to the community. The training course will involve study both in the training centre and at home in the evenings and weekends. You'll be assessed along the way to monitor your progress.

After grasping the basic skills and gaining your first aid certificate, you'll get on-the-spot experience of the heat, humidity, flames and thick smoke of a simulated fire at a real fire training facility.

The training course at Southwark is non-residential and runs weekdays from 8.30am to 4.30pm. When you've successfully passed your training, you'll be allocated to a fire station within the Greater London area. You'll work a shift system at a station - two day shifts, followed by two night shifts, followed by four days off. You'll be on probation for your first year and your performance will be continuously assessed.

Training will be an ongoing process throughout your career as a firefighter and you will be expected to participate in all relevant training and contribute to your own development. We want to make sure that you can safely handle the ever-changing demands and hazards you might face in your job.
