Tent Installer training

IFAI’s Tent Rental Division (TRD) offered a training course at Aztec Events and Tents in Houston, Texas in October, completing a division goal of providing three levels of training for the tent installer, as suggested by members of the Life Safety Task Force. Level One was first offered in November 2007 in Chattanooga, Tenn., Level Two was added in 2008 and Level Three, Training for the Tent Professional Clearspan Focus, was completed in 2011.

“I learned the importance of organization, job planning and job site installations and with this information will be a more efficient company employee,” said Tracey Montgomery, A&A Tents of Shreveport, La. Sofia Serna, Grupo Serna, traveled from Mexico City, Mexico, and expressed her satisfaction with all the clearspan safety installation tips and techniques offered in the workshop.

The next workshop will be held Feb. 27, 2012, as part of Tent Conference 2012 at Allsite Structure Rentals in Las Vegas, Nev.
