Do YOU want to be a Pyrotechnician?
Eastcoast Fireworks in association with Fire & Rescue New Zealand in its capacity as a private Fire Service and Tertiary Education Organisation is offering two day NZQA based Trainee Pyrotechnician (Fireworks) course.
The Trainee Pyrotechnician (Fireworks) course has been designed specifically to meet the need for both a “Basic” course covering the skills and knowledge required for anyone wanting to further their interest in pyrotechnics, or even, to train for a career in the Outdoor Pyrotechnics Industry and the Legislative requirements for the storage, transportation, use and operation of Outdoor Pyrotechnics (fireworks).
- Regulatory requirements relating to the life cycles and operation of an outdoor fireworks display
- Apply safe handling procedures for outdoor pyrotechnic displays
- Identify and manage safety and health requirements at an outdoor fireworks display
- Plan an outdoor fireworks display
- Safe set-up, firing your display (by hand and Electric firing)
This two day hands-on fireworks course starts on Friday evening at 1900 hours and on Saturday morning at 0900 hours and runs through to approximately 2200 hours on Saturday night, culminating in the full fireworks display planned and operated by each participant.
Participants will be issued with a Trainee Pyrotechnician (Fireworks) Log Book which will be used to gather evidence of display experience and to verify that the applicant when making application to the EPA Test Certifier, for an Approved Handlers Certificate for Pyrotechnic Displays and a Controlled Substances Licence for Class 1 Explosives, has the necessary practical experience, in a variety of display environments, to complement their formal training for the award of a Level 1, or Level 2 or Level 3 Approved Handler Test Certificate for Outdoor Pyrotechnic Displays.
