Training

The comprehensive nature of our packages is reflected in our training offerings. We provide training (online/classroom/field exercising) that addresses all areas of the battery fire issue and more. Our training components identify life safety standards and requirements (OSHA, NFPA, etc.), clarify fire behavior, outline, demonstrate, and walk through extinguisher use, and highlight Lithium Ion and other alternative fuel source issues.

The training modules begin with Introduction to Batteries and covers a wide range of battery fire and safety issues ultimately concluding with Emergency Procedures. The complete course (8 modules) provides in- depth coverage of the fire and safety issues associated with li ion batteries.
