This course is designed to meet the objectives outlined in the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1081 Standard for Industrial Fire Brigade Member Professional Qualifications (2012 Edition)” Chapters 5 and 6.
This course will provide your new brigade members, as well as existing emergency response personnel with a solid foundation of knowledge and skills that may be used to safely resolve emergencies involving exterior fire at an industrial facility. All of this is accomplished through a combination of classroom presentations and field exercises.



If you would like certification, you must provide proof by the end of the class that you are trained to NFPA 472 Hazmat Awareness or above.
We are no longer accepting 29 CFR 1910.120(q) without the course syllabus outlining the exact course content, and the course content must meet NFPA 472 Hazmat Awareness.
You can provide a certificate or a transcript from an accredited agency that lists successful completion of the requirements. This proof must be dated prior to the last day of class.
If you cannot show proof through your training records, go to TEEX AWR-160 Online Class and at no cost, you may register and take course number AWR160-W, "Terrorism Awareness for Emergency First Responders" to satisfy the prerequisite. You must print and bring your completed certificate to class.



Due to the nature of the training, a physical examination is recommended prior to enrolling in this course.
