LECTURE / DISCUSSION
We do not like to use the term "lecture". We view it as more of a discussion or an interactive sharing of information. We strive for an audience-interactive learning environment utilizing Power Point presentations and simulator software. Our Power Point presentations include tactical photographs from the best fire photographers in the business. Through the use of photos taken throughout the country and discussion, we drive home size-up, firefighter safety and basic firefighting operations.
The "Lecture/Discussion" class-type may be useful when class enrollment may be larger than what can be managed for hands-on training sessions. Additionally, lectures provide an excellent alternative for the months of the year where intense heat/humidity or deep freeze can render outdoor training distracting or dangerous. There is no "maximum attendance" on Lectures & Discussion as our instructors are used to large-venues.
