Richard Andring of Wiland Associates has been instrumental in assisting our Region IV, Homeland Security Incident Management Team in gaining the necessary training to become viable as a Type 3 IMT.
As the Region IV, IMT Policy Group Chairman I have been working closely with Richard over the last two years to obtain the All Hazards IMT course and all of the Position Specific Training classes. We proposed to Richard that all 8 of the position specific courses be taught in a close time frame to allow us to get everyone trained in a timely fashion. Richard accepted the challenge and in February we received all 8 courses spread over 9 days for 100 plus people from throughout the State of Washington.
The courses we have received from Wiland Associates have been well taught. The instructors have been excellent and with wide experience and background. The material has been appropriate and adjusted to the audience.
What I am saying is that we are impressed with the abilities of Richard to produce courses that fit our needs. They have been extremely flexible to meet our schedules and time frames. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for high quality training...
