You thrive on change, you’re technically-minded and you don’t like being stuck indoors or behind a desk. No two days are ever the same in an Aviation Rescue Fire Fighter role. You are calm under pressure and work well in a team. Most days you’ll provide first aid services to passengers and crew, maintain fire fighting equipment or provide technical advice on fire safety. It’s not all about jumping out of a fire truck and fighting fire. It’s a physically and emotionally challenging job, you work on a 24 hour roster system with accommodation, food and fitness facilities provided whilst on shift.
Training is a 15 week intensive course provided by your employer, Airservices, at their training facility in Melbourne. You’ll complete other certifications and approvals all through your career with on-the-job training.
