Important notice - STCW Policy Changes

Firefighting Turnout Gear

We are constantly looking for ways to improve our training programs to make your training experience better and as safe as possible. In that spirit, we have made some changes to the way we run our STCW courses.

We will no longer provide fire gear for STCW courses. We have allowed students to use our fire gear for many years. That gear is aging out. Additionally, thanks to COVID-19, we are not 100% sure of the health impacts of loaner gear without full decontamination between uses.

Though we have the capacity to clean gear, we do not have the capacity to ensure complete decontamination of it. With these thoughts in mind, we have decided to switch to the rental gear model for the utmost in safety and cleanliness.

You will be responsible for renting your own gear.

We will help facilitate the gear rental when you arrive on the first day of the course.

The gear will be shipped to us for you to use before the firefighting program starts. You will be responsible for packaging it and shipping it back in the provided box. We will help with that as well but the ultimate responsibility will be yours. You will need a credit card with approximately $500 of avaible credit to rent the gear.

We made this decision for two reasons:First is safety. Rental gear is modern, regularly inspected, and repaired between each use. In short, your training experience will be safer with professionally maintained rental gear versus loaner gear.Second is cleanliness. Rental gear goes through a rigorous cleaning and sanitization process between each use. The rental company has better cleaning processes than we can provide.

A full set of gear is approximately $330.00 plus shipping to rent. In addition, the rental company will charge a $100 refundable damage deposit on your credit card. We have reduced the price of our course by $150.00 to help cover this cost. We will still provide clean gloves and hoods. Thank you for your understanding.
