This class will occur regardless of weather. There is some inclement weather that we can continue to train in but for safety reasons there is some weather conditions that we can not train outdoors in. If inclement weather occurs that will not allow for the class to be outside during the weather, there is a plan to work on continuing with hands-on training program to the best of our ability by covering the hands-on skills that we can cover inside. If inclement weather forces the class compltely inside, the isntructors will cover the information in a classroom setting while covering the hands-on skill inside to he best that can be done inside.

This is a hands on training class but not a live fire training class.

Full PPE will be required for this class.
