Technician-Level Emergency Response Training
This 40-hour course is designed to meet and exceed the 29 CFR 1910.120(q) Technician-Level training requirements. The prerequisites for this course include passing an OSHA physical, to include a pulmonary function test. Participants must not have any facial hair that comes between the sealing surface of the face and a facepiece (29 CFR 1910.134(g)(1)(i)(A)). Training involves working in a fully-encapsulating vapor protective suit, which may be uncomfortable to someone with claustrophobia.
Qualified and experienced Public Safety Instructors lead the Technician-Level Emergency Response Training course, from basic defensive actions to offensive mitigation techniques available to responders. The objective-based training goes from the classroom to the training field with hands-on exercises. Topics covered include:
- Laws and Regulations
- Identification and Recognition
- Emergency Response Guidebook use
- Physical Properties
- Respiratory Protection (including fit test)
- Personal Protective Equipment (including Level 'A')
- Air Monitoring
- Incident Management
In addition to the final test, participants engage in a mock emergency response scenario.
