Independent Service Provider Training


This website houses our online program, designed to provide training on the routine and advanced inspection and on the routine and advanced cleaning of Globe protective clothing and footwear. This training covers Structural and Proximity clothing produced under either the Globe Firefighters Suits brand or the Cairns Protective Clothing brand, as well as training on the care and maintenance of structural boots produced by Globe Footwear.

As you will see, this program provides an overview of the entire NFPA 1851 standard, including the repair of protective clothing and boots, but with greater emphasis on the requirements of cleaning and inspection. Following the course, there is a 25 question test, which you will be required to take in order to receive your certificate of training. Once you have successfully answered 20 of the 25 questions, you will be able to print a certificate, which will be your documentation of the training course. (another requirement of NFPA 1851).
