From May 2020 a large part of the training can be completed online before you attend a field training session.  These are usually held on a weekend.  Trainers with extensive industry experience will guide you through the process to plan, build and shoot a safe fireworks show.

It is a requirement in all Australian States to obtain a Police and/or security check before obtaining a fireworks licence.

On completion of the course and obtaining the required Police checks, you will have met the regulatory requirement to apply for a fireworks licence. You may consider;

  • Working as a licenced technician on a fireworks crew for another company
  • Starting your own business in fireworks
  • Supplementing your existing business or workplace by adding these skills
