Description

Shops in NZ selling fireworks require at least on Approved Handler (Retail Fireworks). This course provides the study material needed to do an examination which would lead to the qualification. The examination and application are separate processes.

The course is delivered by Anthony Lealand who has 50 years' experience with fireworks and owns and runs Firework Professionals who not only train approved handlers in New Zealand and the South Pacific but design and fire shows with display fireworks (that's the big shows for Guy Fawkes, New Year's Eve, as well as private and corporate events)

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is designed for people who will be selling retail (domestic) fireworks in New Zealand.
  • This course does not include the examination itself which is separate.
  • Anyone may take the course, however you need to be over 17, be “fit and proper person”, and have work that requires you to handle retail fireworks to apply for an Approved Handler licence.

Firework Professionals

I started my fireworks company in the 1970s after working in the Physics Department in the University of Canterbury for over 12 years. My company covers all aspects of pyrotechnics: creating both indoor and outdoor firework shows; manufacturing indoor pyrotechnics and outdoor shells; importing big fireworks; creation of fireworks choreography - including matching to live music; special effects for film and television; training for Approved Handlers.

My company, Firework Professionals, is renowned for its choreography across the South Pacific and has represented New Zealand at international competitions in China and Europe.

I travel to the International Pyrotechnics Society's Conferences, held in the United States and around the world, and I was invited to present a paper at the 11th International Symposium of Fireworks in Mexico.

In New Zealand, my extensive knowledge of the industry and the technical side led to my being commissioned to provide the basis of the EPA Code of Practice in 2008. I was also invited to become one of the first test certifiers under the new regulations.

In addition, I have also used my expertise to import Nxburst (electrically fired self contained gas producing devices that break rock or concrete using gas pressure) and training people in its use.
