Hands-On Ventilation Classes
Hands-On Ventilation Training:
The hands-on ventilation training is designed to be an option to augment the purchase of a unit. The hands-on ventilation training would normally be scheduled close to the delivery date of the unit and is done in addition to the in-service training that is standard with the every unit. The hands-on ventilation training is excellent in confidence building and teaching current ventilation skills and techniques. The class is also a great way for departments to see how to train on and get the most out of their FireVent unit.
Our ventilation training is comprised of highly trained firefighter instructors. Each instructor has many years in the fire service and a vast amount of knowledge and experience. Their experience comes from the areas they work, amount of fire duty, training background, professional attitude and work ethic. There are no egos with our instructors and we pride ourselves with that attitude. When we teach, the approach we use is not yelling at students or intimidating them, it is with strict confidence building and answering or addressing every question. We take the time to help each student. We strive to deliver the best, top quality ventilation training available.
