Training Maintenance

The skills you learn during your course are only as valuable as your ability to recall and utilize them when the need arises in the field. Regular practice is a key part of competence, and best practices dictate a minimum of annual practice. In addition, many standards (NFPA 1006, CSA, ANSI, etc...) recommend training, but not recertification, at least yearly. To ensure you meet best practices between your course and your recertification (usually three years) we offer two different forms of training maintenance that can be taken advantage of on an annual basis.

Audit Program (for individuals)

This is an option to audit, or participate in a course for which you already hold a current certification - at no charge. Take a look at our upcoming course schedule online and find a course location and time that works for you. Email or call us to sign up as an audit. Show up and take the course -- for free. It's that simple. Free audits do not extend your certification period in any way, but this is a great way to re-fresh your skills on a regular basis, in a safe, controlled environment with a qualified, insured instructor. Check out our online schedule for upcoming courses or contact us for more info.

Training Maintenance Program (for groups)

If you have a group that would like to review their training together, the training maintenance program may be right for you. All your group pays is the instructor's daily teaching fee and travel costs associated with bringing the instructor to your training location. This is generally very reasonable as we have a network of instructors from coast-to-coast. In return, you'll get a private instructor for a single day of jam-packed review of skills and knowledge, tailored to your group's unique needs. It's an excellent value for the cost, and allows you to review your skills in your own backyard.

While neither the Audit or the Training Maintenance Program replace the need to recertify your training before its expiry date, these programs are the key to meeting best practices by keeping your skills and knowledge sharp between certification dates. Feel free to contact us for more info on either option.

TESTIMONIALS

Steve McKinlay
Firefighter Candidate

My instructor Kit was a complete professional with his subject. He was personable and encouraged questions - he also constantly asked questions to check for understanding. There was no time spent standing around, and we always knew what our goals were during scenarios. I had a fun experience during my Operations ropes course, and Kit heightened my desire to be a fire fighter.
