TESTIMONIALS

...[I] go[t] so much out of being in the field and a dozen little practical things that I had read about...A bunch of tiny little things that the veterans I think just took for granted, were really helpful for me to see and experience in person.

Firefighter/Rope Technician/2021

"All [the] instructors were great. Knowledgeable. Friendly. Made sure you understood the why"

Firefighter/Rescue Systems 1/2020

I appreciated getting repetitions on evolutions that we are low frequency. I also appreciated how the instructors were able to pivot and address some of the issues that came up during this course.
