The course is organized into seven modules. At the instructor's discretion, an eighth module may be added to provide more detailed information concerning state and local vehicle-code requirements, federal regulations, incident management information, cross training with public agencies, and specific automotive-related information.
The course can be organized and presented two ways to accommodate different time and facility requirements. The time devoted to each subject and the related hands-on activity remain the same, but the timeline of the class is a little different.
Option One is to do the classroom portion of the program on days one and two and the hands-on work with the equipment on day three, along with a review period and testing.
Option Two is a modular approach that incorporates the hands-on activity at the end of each module, instead of devoting an entire day to hands-on work. With this "quick hit" approach, the modules could be presented one-at-a-time to accommodate scheduling, similar to taking a class that meets once or twice a week for several weeks.
Day 3 is devoted to hands-on towing equipment operation, recovery, and review (6.0 hours) and testing (1.0 hour).
