The Hydra Suite was commissioned in 2008 and since then we have committed ourselves to continually develop the suite to adapt to our organisational training requirements. Our latest installation is a video wall consisting of twenty 46" full HD monitors which we are integrating into our Hydra courses.

We currently use the Hydra system to run courses for Incident Commanders of varying ranks. The Incident Command Training Team are responsible for developing courses for Bronze, Silver and Gold Commanders.
