What is it?
The ASDAN Fire and Rescue Short Course has been developed in collaboration with the Fire Services Youth Training Association (FSYTA) and nine fire and rescue services. It has been designed to be delivered by fire and rescue education teams and can be used to accredit up to 60 hours of Citizenship/Fire and Rescue activity.
The flexibility of ASDAN’s Short Courses means they can be carried out in a variety of settings, over a time period to suit the individual or co-ordinating centre. Challenge descriptions can be interpreted and adapted according to the situation.
Who is it for?
Young people of all abilities, mainly aged between 13 and 19 (as well as adults and younger learners, where appropriate).
However, this programme will be delivered by your local FSYTA-affiliated fire and rescue service; please contact your nearest brigade if you are interested in using this course with your learners. Visit the FSYTA website for contact information.
