2014-2015 Training Season

The new training season is upon us. We came up with a new calendar which I think covers a good range of classes. We plan to put on two I-300/I-400 classes. Date and Time to be determined. We are putting on an M-410 class the week of the 20th of October. This course or an equivalent is required for teaching the unit level and above for every class beginning at the 100 level so now is a good chance for you to get this class. It's in Tucson at the Tucson Fire Center. Unless specified, send the nominations to me at or at fax 520-807-6293. If you want to host a class, please let me know. I may be able to help with books and materials. Please call or email with any questions. 520-202-2704
