• Ventilation practices
• Forcible entry functions
• Search tactics
• Building construction
• Ground ladder placement
• Use of various power tools
• RIT concepts

Students are required to provide their own personal protective equipment, including bunker gear, Nomex hood, gloves, eye protection, and steel-toed boots
