[Live Webinar] How to Get the Most Out of Training in Towers
During training, every minute counts. In this webinar, ISFSI certified instructors, Jake Barnes and Gilbert Pedroza, show you how to get the most out of every minute when training in towers. From maximizing variable spacing to creating challenging scenarios, towers offer first-class training opportunities. Learn how special props can help leverage these experiences, how cross training with other specialties can “kick it up a notch” for your team, and how to really maximize every facet of training in and outside of a tower.
