How to Schedule and Organize a Class
First, contact us for available dates, we need at least an 8 weeks notice to make the proper arrangements with CA State Fire Training.
Number of Students:
- We have a limit of 25 students per class, 15 to 20 students is optimal, we want every student to get individual assistance so that they leave the class with a sound understanding of all the material presented.
- Confirmation of student registration is critical so that we can plan for a good student/instructor ratio.
- We recommend deposits.
- We recommend a wait list to cover those who drop out.
- Agencies that “call-back” staffing resulting in no-shows will be charged a 50% fee unless those seats can be filled from the wait list.
As of January 2008 the Calfornia State Fire Marshal Training has increased its certification fees 400%, unfortunately with this increase and rising fuel costs and motel costs, we are forced to raise fees.
- Fees are now at $300 per student for the two day class plus student manual and certification, effective April 2015.
- Extra costs may be assessed for travel greater than 100 miles. Contact us to negotiate.
- Make checks out to "Large Animal Rescue Company".
To hold a class, we need the following;
- Classroom setting with desks, chairs, white board, ability to block light from windows, power for a projector and computer, preferably on the ground floor
- Space for two life-size demo horses near the front of the room, one standing, one recumbent
- Space for extra table for props, visual material
- Immediate access to additional area for hands-on stations
- Space, inside or out, to roll and manipulate 4 life-size manikins during manipulative skills.
- Space, inside or out, for a truck and horse trailer
- Access to areas to stage scenario training, these should include:
- An area to roll a small horse trailer in its side
- An area to conduct various "over the side" and entrapment extrication exercises
- An area (trees, structure, or tractor) to conduct a vertical lift with a 500 pound manikin
