The Train-the-Trainer (TtT) course is intended to provide participants (i.e., trainers) the knowledge and materials necessary for them to conduct TIM training for responders in their area or state.
The TtT is a 1½-day course that covers 12 hours of material,
- April 4th, 8am - 5pm and

The sessions include classroom training as well as hands-on and outdoor activities.
The target audience for this course is willing, enthusiastic and experienced trainers from all TIM disciplines, including: Law Enforcement, Fire/Rescue, Emergency Medical Service, Towing and Recovery, Emergency Management, Communications, and Highway/Transportation. Participants may be from Washington or Oregon. Those who complete the course will join their state's cross-disciplined TIM training team, and will be expected to cooperatively assist with the delivery of the course in their respective state.
Why train your responders in TIM?
Responders are being struck and killed at traffic incidents in the US on an average of: 5 fire fighters each year, 1 law enforcement officer each month, 1 tow truck operator each week and numerous transportation professionals from DOT, Public Works and Safety Service Patrols each year. It is time to collaboratively enhance our safety and efficiency on incident scenes by training as a single cross disciplined team!
Many Disciplines, One Mission – Safe, Quick Clearance.
