YES! Solutions for First Responders, LLC will work with you to develop a department-wide or bureau training schedule that meets your needs. This option may occur with daily or multiple day training sessions. Costs can be arranged per student, day to day, or multiple training days (whole training package cost).
To reduce training costs, consider Joint training with other agencies or a fire / EMS agency. Some courses are enhanced with law enforcement and fire personnel training together.
