H2K organiseert een breed pakket praktijktrainingen om de kennis en vaardigheden van repressief brandweerpersoneel verder te ontwikkelen. Met reële en herkenbare incidentsituaties en scenario’s. De trainingen kunnen op locatie worden verzorgd, maar ook op oefencentra. H2K werkt bij de organisatie van trainingen samen met diverse oefencentra in Nederland, België en Frankrijk. Dankzij deze partnerschappen is het mogelijk uiteenlopende incidentscenario’s en specialistische hulpverleningstaken op elke gewenste schaal praktisch te trainen in een realistische omgeving.
