The Bullex ITS fire equipment and our new compact gas training systems are very safe and do not require standard fire extinguishers such as messy dry chemical powders and have minimal effect on the environment.

All safety equipment is provided including safety glasses and gloves however we require participants to have fully enclosed footwear and long sleeves.

  • Note: Regional training provided in areas such as Kalgoorlie, Karratha, Port Hedland or mining sites will require additional trainer fees that include:
  • Return air from Perth, vehicle hire (if required) trainer toil, possible overnight accommodation.
  • Recommended qualification period of 2 years.

Help us keep training costs down:

You can help us keep your training costs down by:

  • Arranging for a minimum of 5 participants (Particularly for training conducted at your workplace)
  • Regional training: Participant numbers will be accepted and set on registration (our invoicing will reflect participant numbers as of registration date)
  • When you register for training please ensure that ALL participants arrive at our facility or are available for training (Agreed participant numbers) as your invoice will reflect this. This prevents situations where our trainers arrive in regional towns or mining sites only to find that participant numbers are reduced and we suffer a loss.
