WHY SHOULD I ATTEND THE SEARCH SEMINAR?
The search seminar is designed to make good fireman, confident. We put you in realistic conditions, layout's, situations and environments to have to make sound, confident decisions under live fire, and in artificial smoke settings with real live victims that act the part. This seminar is designed for a firefighter who is certified or signed off by the Chief of Department or training officer, but any rank is highly, highly encouraged to attend. Our staff has collectively completed hundreds of searches and removed victims from working fires. We're confident if you attend you will take away something to add to your arsenal of knowledge to be better for THEM!
The search seminar is running twice a year at Randolph Community College in Asheboro, NC and typically sells out within thirty minutes. To stay informed on the upcoming dates, we recommend you follow us on social media where we release the dates several months in advance. The instructor staff is made up of a variety of experience and departments. We ensure you that any lead instructor is a certified instructor and has experienced the subject's they're teaching.
Below are the hands on training tracks you will get to experience if you come to the search seminar:
