Technical Rescue Academy

One Month of Jam-Packed Training

Every year, our Technical Rescue Academy brings together a series of courses - taught by top instructors - specifically designed for fire fighters, search & rescue volunteers, and industrial ERT personnel. Whether you are hoping to gain employment in the emergency response field, or you’re a seasoned veteran - you’re sure to find a course that will expand your operational range.

What's the deal?

Take one course during the Academy at our regular price and then any additional Academy course you take is 15% off*.  You can take one Academy course, or all of them - whatever you want. When you take two or more Academy courses, all your rental equipment is free*.  Individuals that take multiple courses are recognized by their instructors and Raven Rescue in many different ways throughout the Academy.

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.
