RT: Trench I/II

October 2

Alabama Fire College & Personnel Standards & Education Commission

This course is based on NFPA 1006: Standard for Technical Rescue Personnel Professional Qualifications. The course is designed to offer a combination of classroom and practical evolutions that allow the student to learn 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 wood, mechanical and pneumatic shoring equipment. The student will also learn and apply multiple skills in lifting practices within the trench environment.

Due to the NFPA 1006 standard change, courses scheduled in 2024 can be located here: Technical Rescue Personnel: Trench Rescue Awareness, Operations, and Technician
