Training at Disaster City® begins in the Technical Skills Training Area, a progressive environment offering a series of full-scale work stations for hands-on skills development. The skill objective of each station builds upon each previous one to deliver a full range of skills training. Students learn how to combine tools and techniques to lift and remove heavy objects, construct interior and exterior shoring, and practice breaching and breaking concrete in a variety of disciplines:

  • Crane Operations
  • Exterior Shoring
  • Interior Shoring
  • Breaching-Breaking Tunnel

We are very impressed with the knowledge the instructors, and the training site is phenomenal.
