Retained Trainee Development Programme
Since September 2005 NIFRS have implemented a modular approach to the training of Retained Trainees. This should ensure that they complete the equivalent of the Wholetime Trainee course. These modules can be identified from the following flowchart.
Phase 1 (Safe to Ride) is carried out on station and when completed permits the trainee to attend operational incidents. The remaining modules are delivered either on station or at the FRTC.
