Fireworks Related Training

As part of our training programs we highly recommend the PGI Display Operators Course as well as other similar courses. If you are interested in training please reach out to me directly and I'll help you find a reputable instructor. You can also look at the PGI schedule by clicking here. 

The PGI Display Operators course is designed to meet the need for a general course on display operations and serves as the first stop in becoming a PGI Certified Display Operator. 

The course presents a comprehensive two days of instruction on current firework display practices which includes both classroom training and live fire field training*.

There are several courses avaialble to include the PGI DOC, APA Articles Pyrotechnics course as well as private classes covering topics such as DOT transportation, compliance and legal issues, storage and many other types of relevant courses to help display operators provide safe and legal displays. 

Bomb and EOD Related Training

Event planners and coordinators need to be aware of specific things to look out for including suspicious packages, unattended bags, vehicle barrier locations and other potential threats. We have put together courses and contracted with Jigsaw Security to provide Bomb awareness and EOD course material at several different levels. 

These courses involve the use of ultrasonic timing device detection, portable x-ray and similar technologies to triage a potential security situation. These courses include the use of robotic and drones for managing security sensitive events.

  • Understanding Bombing Motivations PPSB-19-045 7 Hours

  • Bomb Threat Preparedness and Response PPSB-20-022 2 Hours

  • Weapons of Mass Destruction Awareness PPSB-20-023 4 Hours

Several of these courses are approved for CE credit through various organizations to include the NC PPSB as well as professional CE credits. For more information contact Kevin Wetzel at 919-441-7353. Courses are provided by Jigsaw Security Enterprise Inc.
