On this day entered below, the undersigned acknowledges the following regarding participation in this technical rescue course:
- That the activities involved in this course are dangerous and can hold the potential for serious injury and death when established safety procedures are not followed. Potential hazards also include failure of equipment, misuse of equipment and possible neglect or inattention of fellow students and team members. While the instruction staff will do everything in their power to control and eliminate any hazards, they cannot be held responsible for every potential factor. Additionally, every student must make it known to the instructor if they are not comfortable or capable of completing any task or exercise prior to placing themselves or others in danger.
- That this is a professional training program designed for personnel wishing to take a serious approach to rescue and recovery techniques in dangerous environments. Every student’s total attention and participation in a professional manner is required. Horseplay, practical jokes, consumption of alcohol or drugs, and smoking are not allowed while participating in this training.
- The instructional staff of Advanced Rescue Solutions is committed to providing a training environment that is free of inappropriate treatment of any student on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, age, sexual orientation, ancestry or any other federally protected category, class or status. To that end, harassing language or activities by any student will result in the expulsion of that student from the course without refund to the individual or agency.
- All students are expected to act professionally, as they would in their normal department or workplace.
