Pyrotechnic Safety Awareness Course


This illuminating course in pyrotechnic safety uses hands-on activities to give participants a thorough learning experience. Designed by Just FX, a world-leading special effects company with over 25 years’ experience, the course explores the techniques and risks involved with pyrotechnics.

On the course, delegates will be separated into small groups and required to set up and ignite effects, using the control systems and pyrotechnic devices provided. This will demonstrate their understanding of the principles covered and reinforce learning.

The latter part of the course will require the same groups to reunite, working together to provide a small presentation using professional devices including Grid Rockets, Flames, Airbursts, Saxon Wheels, Waterfalls, Mines and Comets.

Equipment and devices used, demonstrated or viewed during the course include products from: 

  • Le Maitre – ProStage
  • Skyhigh
  • Theatrical Pyrotechnics
  • Wells
