Staging Courses

FireWare can undoubtedly call itself the market leader for staging training in the emergency response industry. You will be presented with a completely fresh look at staging with a combination of theoretic and practical exercises.

At your or our premises

We have a very well equipped training location in Wieringerwerf. The theory room is equipped with all possible conveniences and the practical facility offers the possibility of setting up various different scenarios. Registration can be done on an individual basis, please refer to the training dates.

We can also cater for groups of a maximum of 8 people at Wieringerwerf, or we can look after the training at your location with a maximum group size of 8 or 16 people. Dates for such training can be set by prior consultation and can also be organised during the weekends or evenings.


The Basic Staging Training I is the most popular training course. Learn the basic staging techniques and even set up your own training exercise at the end of the day!

  • The ideal basic training course for the staging of a fire or accident
  • For anyone, from having a little experience to being very experienced, who is responsible for organising training
  • Get to grips with all basic techniques in one training course
  • Train with an extensive package of training materials

The low-threshold training course is especially for people who are involved with organising training. The course includes plenty of practical training following a theoretic section! You will have command of the basic techniques at the end of the training course, allowing you to organise realistic training and stage a fire or accident.


The Follow Up Staging Training II offers the opportunity to further expand your staging knowledge. A period of 6 months is recommended to practice the newly obtained skills from the Basic Staging Training I before continuing with the Advanced Staging Training II.

  • The perfect training course to further build on part I
  • For whomever wants to have extra tips and tricks illustrated by plenty of practical examples


The In-Depth Staging Training III takes a closer look at the problems surrounding major training exercises and staging. This training course is completely focussed on preparing for a training exercise. Complete command of the Basic Staging Training I and the Follow Up Staging Training II is assumed.

You will receive a comprehensive theory lesson, with the emphasis on the organisation of staging, counter-play and the management of the stagers before, during and after the training exercise. You will learn to create a scenario from beginning to end, including the professional learning objectives and the various different possible results.

You will subsequently go about preparing a number of exercises yourself. These exercises will include interactive, dynamic and static elements. The results will subsequently be discussed. Each participant will need to bring along a laptop with office package for this purpose.
