Advanced Industrial Interior is a hands-on class designed for the industrial firefighter who wishes to build upon their interior skills in a physically and mentally demanding course. This open enrollment course covers specialized rescue and life safety tactics, fire behavior, and the use of thermal imaging cameras. Participants will also discuss communications on the scene, accountability, building construction, pre-planning and scene size-up.
Participants will practice using various alternative escape route techniques when the primary escape route becomes unusable, with a special emphasis on self-rescue tools and their use. Participants will be given multiple chances to safely practice removing trapped and unconscious firefighters in a cumulative final exercise. During this challenging course, participants will have opportunities to practice these advanced interior fire knowledge and skills through extended burn times.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
