2016 Technician and General Class Dates

The new year has come and the board has now officially scheduled our Technician and General classes for the year. All that are interested in receiving their first license are welcome to sign up for our Technician Class. Any that currently have a Technician Class license, but are interested in upgrading can sign up for our General Class course.

Technician Class License Course (Level 1):

Our February, May, and November classes will all be at the Hurst Fire Station #2 in the upstairs training room. The September class is sponsored by Baylor Regional Medical Center, and will be at BRMC in Grapevine, TX (location). We have conference rooms A and B reserved. Current BRMC employees holding a Technician class license will be given priority for seating, and any other unfilled seats will be opened to the public.

The classes include an experienced, Extra Class (Level 3) licensed instructor(s), teaching the material, answering questions, and helping you understand what it is that your are reading.

Your instructors will be:

Each session will finish with a testing period for those that are ready. The classes with four dates consist of three intensive class days, and a test session on the final day. The September session will consist of 1.5 days of instruction, and a test session on the 29th after lunch.
