“The Ultimate Personal Protective Equipment Confidence Builder For The Technician Level Responder”

shz_su5This 16-hour course is designed to expand the responders knowledge base in the selection, maintenance, testing and practical application of personal protective equipment. Unlike many courses, students are not merely informed of unforeseen consequences but, are challenged with hands-on exercises that will put their new found knowledge to work in the Hot Zone. Each student will be individually compelled to apply tactics and techniques that will permit him and team members to successfully complete a hands on confidence course. The confidence course presents challenges in the form of in-suit emergencies and physical and mental restrictions that may be encountered while working in the Hot Zone.

Entering the Hot Zone will always be a physical and mental challenge to say the least. However, challenges and stress can me minimized with knowledge, confidence and practical experience. This course is 50% hands-on and will require all students to complete exercises and a confidence course in Level A Protection. Challenges encounter during the confidence course will include addressing cargo tank leaks, rebuilding valves, overcoming physical restrictions and much more.
