    Howdy all -

    Im expecting to graduate FL fire academy in a few months, just looking to see if anyone has info on RIC (or is it RIT?) training - what's it entail, how long are course(s), etc? Weve only touched on it, and im interested. Thanks in advance for any help offered.

    RIT is regional at this time. Along with what it's called, the course can be different from place to place. RIT, RIC, FAST, FART it all equals to the the same thing. I think Florida has some pretty good classes, I think at Broward College (is that right?).

    There's hundreds of RIT schools out there, and each one teaches the basic's of RIT, some are better then others, but with any training you get out what you put in.

    Now if you wanting to attend a RIT school or host one, here's a really good site to use fireinnovations.com You can find a class close to you, or you can host one by contacting this company. The man who runs it is named Juan Colorado and as you can see, he has developed alot of RIT stuff. I attended his class along with others and he seems to teach a universal RIT class without degrading other RIT techniques. He's very open minded and has alot of strong instructors.

    His class last 6 days (8 hours per day)
