Nationally Accredited Breathing Apparatus Training

It is expected that all persons achieving this Breathing Apparatus Training course will be competent to wear breathing apparatus because they are working:

  • in a confined space (must also have current Confined Space Training and valid permit to enter)
  • with hazardous gases/vapours/dusts
  • in an oxygen deficient atmosphere
  • in any other situation requiring the wearing of breathing apparatus.


From 1st July 2023 our fees will be increasing. In most cases these are the first increases in over 5 years, we have tried to put this off for as long as possible. As you are probably aware the costs of running a business have increased quite a lot in recent times. Please note that bookings already made, or any bookings made prior to 1st July 2023 will remain at our current prices.

For clients with existing arrangements with AFS, the fees below may not apply. Please contact us for further clarification, thank you.

Breathing Apparatus Course Information


I have used AF&S to arrange both onsite and offsite training. They have been a pleasure to deal with administratively and we have received positive feedback from staff regarding the training provided.

Steve and his team are always a reliable source of information and AF&S is our preferred fire and safety training provider. Having conducted training for our student leadership team for the past few years I would highly recommend them. They are willing to go beyond usual training requirements, and tailor their services to our unique needs.

The Australasian Fire & Safety team has provided training to our organisation for many years. The training sessions are perfect overviews of the necessary detail required for our business needs. The sessions are extremely well structured, planned and focused with the instructor also managing to enlighten us with some humour which made the session interesting and understandable. I definitely feel confident in offering their service to clients.

We have used Australasian Fire & Safety as our provider for fire warden training over the last 4 years. They have provided excellent training presenters, facilities and course content. Steve and his staff provide a great service and we will continue work with them for all our future needs would recommend them to anyone needing fire & safety training.

Australasian Fire & Safety are a very professional company and I have nothing but good things to say about them. All the staff are helpful and pleasant to deal with and always respond to queries in a very timely manner. I would recommend Australasian Fire & Safety to anyone looking to complete their training.

This was a VERY informational course which I would HIGHLY recommend to others, for home or work use

“The group very much enjoyed the professional, efficient and hands on training with Australasian Fire and Safety.”

1 hour Extinguisher training course. Nov 2017

“Australasian Fire & Safety provide fire training for our new shift managers. They are very friendly and a pleasure to deal with. The sessions are well structured, informative, practical and engaging”

It was a different type of learning with the trainer. He was informative, engaging, fun and patient with trainees. The best training ever.

Informative, entertaining and well-run course. Professionally presented adult learning, with enough humour to engage participants in the very important but reasonably dry subject matter. Steve is very knowledgeable and maintains enthusiasm throughout the day. I will wear the red hat with confidence (though hopefully I never need to!).
