One of the major changes will
be the content of each course.
In the state of
Texas we have no certification for auto extrication.
Anyone can put on a class
and give a certificate for the hours.
The goal of Midsouth Rescue Technologies
is to provide the highest quality
During the previous year we have
been collaborating with the SFFMA certification board to establish an actual certification program.
Each level has certain objectives and hours that
must be met, much the same as
SFFMA fire certification program.
This years ExtricationFest!
courses are designed to meet the hours and objectives of these levels of certification.
Each attendee will receive a break down of the hours
and objectives covered in their course level. After completing an 8 hour Hazmat Awareness class. The attendee's Certification
Coordinator can then apply to SFFMA for that
specific level of certificate. (Once the program is formally approved).
When registering for the Intermediate or Advanced courses the attendee must provide proof of the required prerequisites
for the level they are applying for.
(These are listed
for each course, on their respective page).
Each one of the courses in this years Extrication Fest
will cover all objectives for that level, except an 8 hr Hazmat Awareness class, required
to meet NFPA 472.
