WHAT DOES A CLASS COST?
Honestly, it all depends...IFT can cater the class to your specific needs by either expanding on or eliminating some portions of the class. We use a standardized class cost calculator that takes everything from mileage, sacrificial material costs, lodging (if required), and more into the final bid for your class. Please contact us for further inquiries.
WHAT DO WE AS A DEPARTMENT NEED TO PROVIDE?
Again, this will vary slightly with how you choose to build the program we will deliver. At a minimum, we need a classroom with AV hookups (HDMI), a projector and screen, and adequate seating for however many people you intend on training.
If we deliver any hands-on saw training:
-All students will need full structural PPE including eye and ear protection. We always have backup eye/ear protection in case someone forgets some. IFT cannot provide any additional PPE.
-All students and observers must sign a standard release of liability prior to operating/observing any power saw operations.
-IFT requires site access prior to the training for prop construction/setup. This can be arranged prior to the training date.
-It is strongly advised to incorporate whatever rotary saw complement you currently operate into this training. This way students can run and practice with the actual saws they'll be using on calls. IFT will provide two rotary saws (one Husky and one Stihl) for the duration of the training, as well as one Milwaukee battery-powered saw. We recommend bringing as many rotary saws as possible from your department cache.
-The props need a significant area to setup and work best when distanced significantly from each other to combat the associated high noise levels. If a large area like a training center or graded lot is not available, we can make different arrangements and use one prop at a time.
- IFT cannot provide disposal of any sacrificial doors/locks/etc destroyed during training. We will assist where we can to pack out debris but it is required that the host provide some sort of disposal on site (i.e. roll off dumpster, or the ability to pile the debris safely away until it can be mitigated by the host department).
If we deliver any hands-on TTL training:
- All students must have eye protection, a helmet, and work gloves.
- IFT may require site access prior to the training for prop construction/setup. This can be arranged prior to the training date.
- An area of approx. 20x20' must be dedicated to the hands-on training and is preferred to be outdoors (weather applicable) or in an durable indoor area where training can occur (i.e. apparatus bay).
- IFT cannot provide disposal of any sacrificial locks/wood destroyed during training. We will assist where we can to pack out debris but it is required that the host provide some sort of disposal on site (i.e. roll off dumpster, or the ability to pile the debris safely away until it can be mitigated by the host department).
If we deliver any hazmat training:
- IFT requires a well-ventilated area such as an apparatus bay where two folding tables can be arranged for sampling various chemicals.
This list is not all encompassing and we will work with you as best we can to alleviate any concerns and to make this a quality training for your people!
WHO CAN TAKE YOUR CLASSES?
Our classes are geared towards all firefighters of all skill levels, both volunteer or career. We have also delivered our "Through The Lock" class to police departments and SWAT teams.
CAN WE HOST A CLASS AND CHARGE FOR OUTSIDE PARTICIPANTS TO ATTEND?
Yes. As long as we have an accurate head count in advance so we can secure the correct amount of sacrificial doors/locks/etc, we can dial in the exact cost of the class and you can charge whatever you deem fair on top of our base fees.
CAN YOU TRAVEL TO US?
Yes. We are equipped to take all three classes on the road with a truck and trailer. The class cost calculator accounts for any mileage, lodging, etc if applicable. Our saw class MAY require some additional logistical work from the host department to secure doors for training in their area. It is very difficult to transport several overhead doors in addition to a trailer full of tools and other props, although we can transport some doors if need be.
