New training dates 2015

We are pleased to announce our new firework training course dates for 2015. These will include two BPA training weekends, two Category 3 training days and our popular new fireworks experience called a Fun Day with Fireworks.

Our  two-day BPA firework training course and exam has been structured for anyone who wants to gain a professional qualification as a pyrotechnician. Before enrolling, candidates must have attended at least three displays as a trainee. These do not have to be with Fantastic Fireworks although we can offer such a service. We will accept anyone who can demonstrate that they have the necessary show experience, such as a log book. You must be 18 or over to attend. The cost, which includes a comprehensive manual, the BPA exam (£45), lunch and refreshments is  £225.

Our Fun Day with Fireworks is a truly unique fireworks experience: the only opportunity currently available in the UK where members of the public can learn about fireworks in an exciting and innovative way and actually get to participate in a display. No qualifications are required. The cost of our Fun Day with Fireworks is £195. Sorry this course is now fully booked.

Our Category 3 firework training course is a one-day introduction to fireworks suitable for home use. This course is principally designed for organisers of Bonfire Night displays who require training in the setting up and firing of displays for larger audiences. A new feature for 2015 will be a section on electric firing. The cost of the Category 3 course is £145. One free place is available to any organisation or individual spending £1000 or more on our retail fireworks.Please call 0845 272 3550 for further details or visit
