• Description

    The course provides firefighting team members with specific training to deal with cases of intervention in which the use of respiratory protective devices is necessary.

  • Course program

    Theoretical aspects


    • Recognizing cases where the self-contained breathing apparatus is necessary:
    • High temperature air
    • Suboxygenated atmospheres
    • Mixture of air and toxic products


    • Breathing physiology:
    • Airway system (how human breathing works)
    • Mechanisms that control breathing frequency and air consumption
    • Respiratory muscles and types of breathing (thoracic, diaphragmatic and clavicular)


    • Breathing techniques
    • r-ebt
    • skip breathing
    • breathing aimed at the intervention performance


    • respiratory protective devices:
    • devices which are depending on the environment atmosphere
    • devices which are not depending on the environment atmosphere


    • Hygiene and healthiness standards
    • Contaminated PPE management after intervention


    Practical sessions


    • Breathing work:
    • Breathing test, use of breathing techniques


    • Use of respiratory protective devices:
    • Checks before the intervention
    • Devices wearing/removing
    • Familiarization with devices
    • Breathing test, use of respiratory protective devices
  • Next dates
