All volunteer firefighters are required to complete basic training and demonstrate competency in the field under supervised conditions prior to attending wildfires.
Training courses are conducted several times a year, with a break during the summer months. The 2015 calendar of training for Mundaring Fire School is available here as an example of the training available.
The basic training pathway for all volunteer bushfire firefighters is:
- Induction (provided at the Brigade when an application for membership is completed)
- Introduction to Firefighting
- Bush Firefighting
- Structural Firefighting
Beyond this, there are more advanced courses available through the Mundaring Fire School and DFES.
All training for the Brigade is coordinated by the Brigade Training Officer. Nominations for courses should be in writing using a application form available here. Contact with the Training Officer can be via email here
