Course Description

Advanced Technical Rescue Solutions is a course designed to provide a “beyond Pro Board” rescue experience using realistic timed scenarios to challenge our participants. The “Golden Hour” is the benchmark in first response and being “On the Clock” not only adds to the realism but places a premium on teamwork to complete rescues in challenging environments. The reality on the ground is, we never have enough people and wish we had more equipment. This course will teach you to do more with less, without sacrificing safety or effectiveness. Come prepared to put your prerequisites to work, very little time will be spent in the classroom.

The course delivery methodology consists of lecture with PowerPoint presentations, demonstrations, participant discussions, scenarios, hands-on construction and operation of rope rescue systems in industrial confined spaces as well as performance-based application exercises.

Other Information

Annual Fire Training School Information

If you are attending this course as part of TEEX’s Texas Annual Fire Training School, you need to be aware of the following additional information:

Annual Fire Training School Registration Requirements

Annual Schools require that you use the online registration system.

We have streamlined the process for payment via Texas A&M Forest Service funding (H.B. 2604 or TIFMAS Grant Assistance Program). Before you register for a course, you must attain approval from the Texas A&M Forest Service for training tuition. On your approval letter, there will be a voucher approval number. Each participant approved for tuition grant assistance will need this number.

Register for your course through your TEEX student portal. On the payment section, choose “Purchase Order” and enter the “VFDE” number (for example “E123456”). If your department was approved for multiple participants, each participant up to the maximum approved in the training tuition request may use the same VFDE number. If the total amount due is greater than the total amount allowed by the tuition voucher, the individual/department will be responsible for the difference. You are no longer required to email or fax the approval letter to TEEX/ESTI unless it is specifically requested by TEEX staff. 

The PO contact email needs to be either yourself or a responsible person within your organization.

A new data field has been added to the payment process. The Tax ID (Tax Payer ID, EIN or FEIN) will be the number assigned to your organization. The field is required and needs to be in the following format: xx-xxxxxxx.
