Flashpoint Fireworks Ltd - Professional Firework Display Experience & Training Day
Saturday 3rd June 2017 – Near Guildford, Surrey. Once booked you will be advised of the location.
Flashpoint Fireworks is an award winning, professional pyrotechnic company based near Guildford, Surrey. We have provided amazing firework displays nationwide for councils, companies, concerts, weddings, parties and the public. We have also won several UK firework competitions including the British Musical Fireworks Championships.
Have you ever wanted to get involved with and know what goes on behind the scenes at a firework display? This is your chance to meet the designers and display crew from Flashpoint Fireworks and see the different techniques we use to provide our displays throughout the year.
The day will consist of the following:
• Risk assessment & site safety
• The different types of fireworks we use
• The difference between Category 3 & Category 4 fireworks
• Different firing techniques such as hand and electric firing
• PPE – Personal Protective Equipment
• Fusing Techniques – including hands on experience
• Display design and firing orders
• Site clearance after a display
Lunch will be supplied for all participants and there will be snacks and drinks available during the day.
Once the training is over you will help set and then fire a small musical display in the early evening.
If you would like to work with us at other events and displays, this training would be a great way to see if this type of work is for you. There would also be possibilities for you to crew at competition displays later in the year. Flashpoint will be competing at the Stanford Hall Firework Champions event on the 29th July and at the British Musical Firework Championships in Southport later in September.
Flashpoint Fireworks are members of the BPA (British Pyrotechnic Association) and the EIG (Explosive industry Group). All members of our display crew will be entered for their BPA examinations once they have conducted their preliminary in house training.
The cost for the day will be £60+VAT per person. This will include a Flashpoint Fireworks training experience T-Shirt, your own BPA log book and a certificate to say you have attended the course. If you decide you would like to work on firework displays with Flashpoint Fireworks after this training experience day and then complete our three-display induction period, we will refund the £60+VAT you paid, after your 3rd display.
