All training scheduled at BEST Complex has been suspended due to the catastrophic flooding.

For those requiring Fireguard training, we have modified our current Fireguard program from Live Fire to Simulation using the BULLEX Fire Extinguisher Training Simulator. This modified version has been approved by the local facilities that require Fireguard training.

Commencing Friday, September 15, 2017, the Simulated Fireguard course will be offered at the ISTC Nederland location two times a day, Monday through Friday at 1:00 pm and 2:30 pm.

The Firewatch CBT course is also required to complete the 09FGSIM. The Firewatch course code is A09FWA and can also be taken at the ISTC Nederland location and scheduled through Atlas.

Scheduling Notes:

When scheduling in Atlas, choose the ISTC Nederland location and search for course code 09FGSIM.

The cost of the course is $25.00 for subscribers and $32.50 for non-subscribers.

The length of the course is 1 hour.

A09FWA and 09FGSIM will be added to the badge upon successful completion of the Firewatch and Fireguard Simulator courses.
