Training Opportunities

The American Pyrotechnics Association (APA) offers comprehensive fireworks training for members of the fire service and enforcement communities.   Training will include a review of applicable Federal regulations governing the fireworks industry including ATF, DOT, OSHA, CPSC, as well as NFPA industry consensus standards; along with on-going industry efforts to ensure best safety practices. 

The APA program typically covers the three primary segments of the fireworks industry – consumer, display, proximate & indoor – and can be tailored to meet an organization’s specific needs.  This training program is a “must” for individuals new to the fire service or enforcement field as well as an excellent continuing education “refresher” course for all veteran public safety officials.
