Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. Furthermore, you will always have access to the most up to date version of the course as we update the material.
Are there any pre-requisites?
Previous knowledge of rescue company operations is encouraged, but you do not need to be a technician level rescuer. This class will not make you a technical rescue technician, but it will give you new tools to be a better manager and leader.
Will I receive a certificate of completion?
This class is more about being the best manager and leader possible than it is about hanging a new certificate on your fridge. However, many of you will need proof of completion for your organization if they are paying. Please send us an email at eldertechnicalrescue@gmail.com when you finish and we can take care of that for you.
How long will it take to complete the class?
This will depend largely on the individual, and how quickly he/she moves through the lessons. Students who take their time to absorb the material and interact with the instructor and other students by leaving comments will benefit the most from the class. If this class were presented in a classroom format for a group it would take approximately six hours.
