Our next Online Awareness ATR course will open for registration in August 2023.
For those who are unable to attend live trainings, the Awareness Level Animal Technical Rescue training is now available online. This training is offered several times throughout the year as an open enrollment opportunity for anyone interested in learning about animal technical rescue emergencies, and is particularly valuable for animal owners, veterinary professionals, and first responders.
Online Awareness ATR consists of 5 modules that participants can complete at their own pace (most can complete the course in 5 hours). The modules consist of recorded lectures, sample incidents on which participants are asked to comment and consider, and a variety of resources for extended learning opportunities. Brief quizzes will check for understanding at the conclusion of each module. Course topics include:
- Introduction to ATR
- Safety, Behavior, and Handling Principles
- Scene Management
- Tools & Techniques
- Rescue Scenarios
This online training is recognized by the Florida State Fire College for 5 hours of Continuing Education credit. Veterinary professionals in the state of Florida can also receive 5 hours of Continuing Education credit. Click here to register.
