Rescue Technician: Trench Refresher

A course designed to provide hands on training that will allow students to stay up to date in the field of trench rescue. The course will consist primarily of outside skills practice of the pertinent job performance requirements of the NFPA 1006, Standard for Rescue Technician Professional Qualifications.

A course designed to review the student on proper techniques to make open trenches and excavations safe for victim access and removal. The class is made realistic by actual sheeting and shoring operations of “unsafe” trenches, by using shoring equipment, and practice in developing skills in lifting practices within the trench environment.
