Pyrotechnic safety - 2021

Pyrotechnic safety : Part 1

Product behavior - Effects evaluation methods


The aim of this course is to develop the technical skills of a pyrotechnic technician or engineer and their approach to safety in order to prevent accidents in manufacturing establishments or those using pyrotechnic substances and items.


The course lasts 5 days (30 hours) and includes :

  • 4 days in Paris (lectures, films, case studies,
    panel discussion)
  • 1 day at a pyrotechnic establishment.


This course will provide technicians and pyrotechnic engineers with an overview of the various safety issues facing any technician and engineer working in the pyrotechnic sector and the methods to solve them.

It will help them to analyze the constraints specific to the profession, to better predict the sometimes dramatic consequences of a decision, and to optimize the powers and skills that each one has, at any hierarchical level, in order to ensure necessary prevention.

This course intends to address the theoretical and practical issues of the industry head-on through appropriate methods (classes, visits, films, demonstrations of various phenomena, case studies, panel discussions) delivered by engineers with a great deal of practical experience in pyrotechnics.

The knowledge gained of the pyrotechnic behavior of products will aid understanding of the rules and recommendations of the Guide of Good Practices of Pyrotechnics, as well as knowledge useful for drafting Work Safety Studies, the focus of the second part of this course, DET 016.


Course level: Advanced

Highly experienced tech degree-level technicians and engineers working in manufacturing establishments or those using pyrotechnic and explosive substances.

This course is a prerequisite for anyone wishing to take course DET 016 PYROTECHNIC SAFETY PART 2 - Application of regulations - Work Safety Studies

Prior completion of introductory course DET 012 "Introduction to Pyrotechnic Safety" is beneficial.

Minimum bac +2
