Train the Trainer


Train the Trainer


After starting with 3 lead instructors, Fathom Academy has grown enough to need more! We had our first Train the Trainer course today and plan to add more to the schedule as we build out our calendar.

If you are:

  • a first responder or SAR team member and are interested in teaching

  • interested in testing rescue techniques in Fathom Academy’s controlled environment

  • excited about helping to keep our first responders as safe as possible

check out the website for future instructor courses and reach out.



Here we go…

My name is Barton and I am the inventor of the indoor swiftwater rescue training center. This is the first time I have ever blogged, but I suppose you gotta start sometime. After a year of testing the prototype tank, and another year of testing the swiftwater training curriculum, our third year of operations has proven that we actually make a difference. We have now trained departments from Local, State, and Federal agencies, from both coasts, and even from other countries.

This blog will allow us to show you what goes on behind the scenes as we continue to grow. Thanks.
