The FEMA Structural Collapse Technician course is an 8 day – 80 hour program developed by the FEMA structural engineers and subject matter experts for encompassing structural collapse training for assessing and mitigating all types of collapses in all types of buildings to facilitate search and rescue operations. Students are exposed to theory, principle and relationships of how and why collapse events occur and how they can best be addressed for successful and safe search and rescue operations. The training integrates elements of physics and engineering concepts and is heavily weighted with practical applications of shoring construction, movement of heavy objects about with everything from levers to cranes and physically defeating concrete and steel in a safe and efficient manner facilitating victim rescue. The curriculum is the core collapse training for all 28 Federal USAR teams and meets and exceeds all applications of NFPA Standards 1006 and 1670.
Course only open to currently credentialed Military, Law Enforcement and First Responders and Rope Level I & II.
