RFA and TRANSCAER® are hosting two webinar training opportunities titled “Train the Trainer” to members and their emergency response teams. Professional hazmat trainer Richard Miller of the International Association of Fire Chiefs will teach individuals how to train others in ethanol emergency response tactics and procedures. These webinars will take place , July 14, 2016 and via WebEx and will be FREE to attend.
“Train the Trainer” is a pay-it-forward type of program. A single webinar can train a group of individuals who can then turn around and pass that information forward, equipping entire communities with the knowledge necessary to respond to any potential ethanol-related emergency. The webinar is open to all individuals interested in learning how to teach ethanol emergency response, but will be tailored toward ethanol production facility employees, ethanol safety professionals, railroad safety professionals, emergency responders, firefighters, police officers, emergency management professionals, etc.
We know that ethanol plant managers are always looking for worth-while training events for their emergency response teams and RFA’s “Train the Trainer” program offers a unique look at how to clearly convey emergency response tactics to others. For those unable to attend the previous “Train the Trainer” seminars / webinars, this is your chance to tune in and learn without having to leave your desk.
We highly encourage all RFA members to sign up and join the webinar. Registration is required. Individuals interested in registering for the webinar can visit www.rfa.trainscaster.com.
