It wasn't specifically four classes...those were the primary segments worked into a series of classroom and hands on trainings. We probably spent 6 hours in classroom and station drills, plus another 6 hours on multi-company drills. We developed the RIT SOG, then developed the training to ensure that everyone understood how to not need RIT, when to call for RIT, how RIT would deploy and operate, etc.

firemanjb are you saying that if you get those four or so classes you can be a member of RIT. Approximately how many hours of training are those courses? Reason I am asking so many questions is because there is somewhat of a debate about the requirements that are being set up for our RIT. I agree with you, we also do not have the luxury of picking from a lot of guys. We are a small volunteer fire department and as throughout the country, nobody seems to want to volunteer anymore. It is the same guys over and over again.
