NES Pyro are one of the few companies in the UK that deliver full training in the pyrotechnics industry. We pride our self in teaching to the highest standard to assure safety amongst pyro's and the public. The scheme requires candidates to undertake a course of training after which they will sit an exam. Successful candidates are then trained level one pyro's.


The scheme, which will be developed and adapted to accommodate changing legislation and practices, is based on a sound knowledge of the hazards associated with:


    Basic Firework Chemistry

    Firework types

    Firework effects

    Fireworks in transport

    Rigging techniques

    Site design

    Firing methods

    Fallout considerations



This is not a replacement for other statutory provisions (e.g. relating to training of drivers) but provides a sound basis for safe operation.  In addition to the courses, each candidate is required to maintain a ‘log book’ of their display experience.  This log book will prove invaluable in verifying that operators have the necessary practical experience, in a variety of display environments, to complement their formal training.  The course is presently available at two levels:


    Firers – for assistant operators at display sites with limited experience

    Senior Firers – for senior operators at display sites who have passed a Firers level and have extended their experience
