The Aerial Maintenance Class is an EVT F5 Aerial Fire Apparatus Course. The class will include currently accepted NFPA 1911 Standard for the Inspection, Maintenance, Testing and Retirement of In-Service Emergency Vehicles and also includes the manufacturer recommended maintenance practices along with the different types of design and construction. The aerial device requires preventative maintenance on a regular basis that includes the visual, operational and load tests as outlined in the NFPA 1911 which also includes the hands-on portion for the student by delving into an aerial device. A sound vehicle maintenance and testing program is important to government agencies of all sizes. That’s why understanding the proper aerial maintenance and testing are so important.

The course provides discussion of the EVT test taking process so that even taking the test may be understood to be an educational experience. The goal is not only to prepare the student to pass the test but to help the student to develop a mindset that allows them to perform better as a technician in their role of servicing and repairing emergency vehicles.

This course is also applicable to driver/operators, engineers, training officers and apparatus committee members.
