Applus+ TST launches the 3rd Edition of the Tunnel Control Room Operator Certification Course in Fire Management

The training, which is scheduled for June 22nd and 23rd, includes simulations and practical exercises with real fire in the Applus+ TST test tunnel in Asturias.

In the training programme, in addition to learning the theoretical side of how a fire evolves in a tunnel, three practical exercises will be carried out inside the test tunnel:

  • Test-demonstration with real fire
    • Smoke evolution (from inside the tunnel)
    • Smoke evolution (from the control room
  • Rehearsal-demonstration with white smoke from inside the tunnel (evacuation drills)
  • Practice in extinguishing real fire

All of the exercises will be coordinated and supervised by Applus+ TST personnel, maintaining all necessary safety measures. In addition, the Mining Rescue Brigade participates in the control and evolution of the fire in order to act if necessary.

 

WHO IS THIS CERTIFICATION AIMED AT?

The certification is aimed at professionals from road tunnel operating and/or maintenance and conservation companies, tunnel safety and emergency managers, tunnel control room operators. The training is also of interest to engineers and consultants who design and plan tunnels, government personnel with responsibilities in the management of tunnels and roads, insurance companies and any professional involved in an activity related to tunnels.
