Technician Level


Technician Level


2 day course:

Technician Level provides skills practice for technician level rescuers, focusing on building to muscle memory. Technician level rescuers don't have time to always think in an incident, so relying on those instincts will be critical.

There is an online module that must be competed before coming to Fathom Academy but all skills are practiced in Fathom's temperature controlled, indoor tank.
