Scalable, Efficient, Effective
One of the biggest benefits of the online training is that you can train a single person or you can train an entire city. Think about how long it would take to train 100 personnel to the awareness level. 5, 8, 12 months? Probably a lot longer, but the point is with the Rescue3 Awareness course ALL of your personnel can train simultaneously, during off hours, without any travel costs, overtime costs, or lost wage costs. On top of that each student ends up with a recognized 3rd party NFPA compliant certification! Pretty amazing!
Students can view the course in any order, allowing the user to focus more on areas of content they are weak in and less in areas where they may have prior experience or knowledge.
Finally, all successful students will have passed a final course exam proving that they a have a high level of understanding of the content and have an effective Awareness Level of skills and knowledge.

Maximize Your In-field Training
Traditionally, the SRT-1 Technician level course is taught with a recommended (1) day classroom + (2) days field work paradigm. The SRT-1 Online Preload offers the ability to study at a pace that is comfortable for the individual over a period of time is better for others. Studies have shown that actually this is more the case. Bottom line, spending time on the theory and techniques that will be covered and are required for certification prepares the student better for in-field, hands on exercises. Although the 8 hour classroom may be effective, having days or weeks to review and study the material allows the student to thoroughly absorb the curriculum.
