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.
  • Costs:


    As of July 2020 the Calfornia State Fire Marshal Training has increased its certification fees an additional 250% to $75 per certificate. Unfortunately with this increase and rising fuel costs and motel costs, we are forced to raise fees.
  • Fees are now at $450 per student for the three day class including a student manual and CA state Fire certification. (Two certificates, ATR Awarness and ATR Technition)
  • Extra costs may be assessed for travel greater than 100 miles. Contact us to negotiate.
  • It is our goal to promote and expand the disapline. We are retired and are not trying to make a living teaching classes and thus are willing to work with groups to contain costs as much as possible.
  • Make checks out to "Large Animal Rescue LLC".

To hold a class, we need the following;

    Day one, Awarness
    • This is a classroom over view of Animal Techinical Rescue. A classroom setting with desks, chairs, white board, ability to block light from windows, power for a projector and computer, preferably on the ground floor
