What does the Vimpex Rescue Academy approach offer that others don't?

Your Interest!

Your professional Rescue Service faces many challenges today, including ensuring that the learning and development tempo of those you employ is maintained in an operating environment of significant budgetary constraint. It's within this reality that we can help.

Created by acknowledged world leading technicians and training providers from the UK's top fire and rescue organisations, the Vimpex Rescue Academy has an essential role to play in the delivery of your ongoing training and development and offers you truly affordable world class expertise.

There's no shortage of training providers for rescue disciplines but our approach is different!

Put simply, we deliver; exceptional training underpinned by certificated content from World-leading experts at very economical pricing levels!

  • All training is delivered at your site - maximising your investment in facilities and removing training down-time.
  • Training is delivered using your equipment and appliances - ensuring that learning happens with equipment you have at your disposal and are familiar with.
  • Each individual student is professionally assessed against established standards by World-leading experts and awarded Continuous Professional Development (CPD) with key institutions for attendance.
  • Training is designed to the highest professional standards and approved by recognised leading bodies including the Institution of Fire Engineers and the United Kingdom Rescue Organisation.
  • Training is delivered by pre-eminent experts in each field.
  • Vimpex Rescue Academy training solutions provide you with complete assurance that your technicians and officers can operate safely, assertively and effectively in all situations.

A Structured Approach
For all courses delivered, there is a clear and simple three-level progression from the Introductory Course - ensuring safety of both staff and casualties - developing competent use of equipment in ever-changing dynamic emergency situations, through to more complex skills and techniques designed to maximise the effectiveness of your rescue teams. For each subject area, there are additional specialist modules that can be tailored to fit the specific risks your organisation experiences such as rail, hazmat or large vehicles.

Introduction and Safe Working
Focusing on safe and effective operations:

  • For those who have had limited experience of the tools and environment in which they will be used.

Developing skills including practical application of effective techniques;

  • For users who have had some experience but perhaps limited formal training in how to optimise use of their tools and equipment and previously learnt techniques.

Advanced Technician
Building on skills developed over time;

  • For those that wish to practice more advanced techniques and perhaps pass-on their skills to local colleagues.

Specialist Modules
Designed to follow-on from Introductory, Technician or Advanced Technician attendance, the range of modules use the expertise developed at each level and progress specialist skills appropriate to the risks faced by your service.
