The training offered by Intelligent Training Solutions provides the skills and knowledge to inspect, test, and service fire extinguishers at a client’s location but does not certify you to pressure test cylinders as required by the five-yearly inspection. Intelligent Training Solutions accepts no responsibility for the subsequent actions of participants.
This course and employment as a service technician for fire extinguishers and fire blankets involve moderate physical activity, including kneeling and bending. Intelligent Training Solutions does not accept any responsibility for any harm suffered by you as a result of your participation in the course. If you have any special needs (including those in relation to Language, Literacy or Numeracy), a relevant disability or condition, or any other concerns, you should raise these prior to enrolment.
Even though training to become a service technician is a serious matter, we pride ourselves on our energic, practical and engaging format that simulates real working scenarios. Our courses contain a lot of valuable content to ensure participants remain engaged rather than listening to war stories of the trainer’s past experiences. Unlike many other providers, our trainers are highly qualified from the fire services industry and are all currently still working in their field. Our standards for trainers are high to ensure that the information you receive during this course is current, practical, and not just taught by anybody holding the certification. We believe in providing highly qualified trainers with real and current industry experience.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions on this course; please click on any questions below to expand the content.
WHY DOES THIS COURSE HAVE A SELF-PACED (ONLINE) PERSONAL STUDY COMPONENT?
Most people enrolled in a course are unaware that a nationally accredited course is assigned with nominal (recommended) hours as a guide to the RTO in how much time should be allocated to the training and assessing of a unit of competence. As nominal hours are used as a guide, RTOs can vary slightly in actual hours the delivery and assessment; however, it must be noted that extremely variations in delivery hours are causes for concern.
This course has been assigned 16 hours; therefore, no training provider in Australia should deliver this course in one day without a personal study component. Like a wise TV Judge once said, “if it sounds too good to be true, then it is!”
Think about it…. how do you fit 16 hours of information into 7 hours without homework? More importantly, how do you fit 16 hours of learning into 2 hours as some other providers of this course are claiming to do?
For this reason, we have developed an interactive, informative and enjoyable online personal study component split in several topics that allow you to complete all the non-practical yet important components in your own time at home or at work. Our online component contains videos, animated videos and presentations that guide you through each topic. Once you have completed the learning materials for each topic, you will be asked to complete a small quiz to confirm your understanding of what you have just learned.
NOTE: Each topic has a quiz. The number of questions in a quiz varies between 6 to 16, depending on the topic.
Before enrolling, we always have students call us and ask why our course is so long compared to other providers. During that phone call, we take the time to explain what we do and why. The interesting part for us is that after that person enrols and then completes the course, we NEVER have that, or any other student, come back and tell us that the course is too long. They do come back telling us how good the practical training, materials, and our trainers were!
WHAT IF I AM NOT CONFIDENT USING A COMPUTER OR I DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO A COMPUTER OR THE INTERNET?
For those who are not confident with a computer, Intelligent Training Solutions may be able to arrange for you to attend our training centre before your course, where our staff can support you in completing your online personal study component using our computers and internet.
Please Note: We will always recommend you attempt to complete your personal study component online at home. Our team of trainers and administrators are available on our phones to support you in gaining access to your Learner Portal.
WHAT IS INVOLVED WITH THE 7HR IN-CLASS (FACE-TO-FACE) TRAINING SESSION?
The face-to-face training session is a fun, interactive, hands-on session that covers all the practical elements of the test and tag service technician. Information is presented to you in a conversational delivery approach, with lots of real-world scenarios, enhanced video, modern presentations and, most importantly, a direct focus on practical, easy-to-implement approaches and techniques.
PRIVATE & CORPORATE BOOKINGS ARE AVAILABLE ONSITE
Onsite training is a convenient and flexible training solution for your workplace or community group.
Intelligent Training Solutions brings the training to you wherever and whenever you need it, with onsite delivery available six days a week for 50 weeks of the year!
