Structural Collapse Technician - Level II

Structural Collapse Technician - Level II : 45.00 Hours

Course Description

The scope of this course is to prepare responders to operate as a local member of a regional team within the NIMS at a CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, or Explosive) WMD event requiring statewide response that has resulted in the failure of a building constructed of steel, concrete, or masonry. This course is extensively hands-on and prepares the student to operate safely and efficiently at a building collapse incident involving WMD. It offers practice in cutting, breaching, lifting, stabilizing, searching, shoring, packaging, and removing victims from a simulated collapse environment. This course is intense and physically demanding, but the competence and confidence that is gained is worth the sweat that is lost.
