Assumption of Risks Agreement

In consideration of my voluntary participation in the FCPSTC training program, I understand that I am being asked to carefully read each of the following paragraphs.  I understand that if do not completely understand these terms, I will contact the FCPSTC for clarification by email at: info@fcpstc.org before submitting an application to attend a training program offered at the FCPSTC.

I understand that the FCPSTC training program to which I am applying, by its very nature, includes inherent risks that cannot be completely eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries.  The specific risks vary but the injuries range from minor injuries (sprains/strains/cuts), major injuries (broken bones/lacerations) and catastrophic injuries including death.

I understand and appreciate the risks that are inherent in the FCPSTC training program and activities.  I hereby assert that my participation is voluntary and I knowingly assume all such risks.  I further understand that I am ultimately responsible for my own safety.  I have reviewed the training provider’s course description for the course to which I am applying, with particular attention paid to any physical demands that will be expected of me during participation in the training, laboratories and practical exercises.

I agree to follow the instructions and precautions as stated by the instructors.   I assume responsibility for attending all safety briefings.   If I observe any unusual, significant hazard during my presence or participation in this training, I will immediately remove myself from participation and bring such to the attention of the instructors.

I understand and acknowledge that neither the FCPSTC nor the training provider are making any representation as to any participant’s physical ability to participate in this activity.   I have no known health problems or medial conditions which could be exacerbated by my participation in this activity.  I assume all health risks associated with such activity.  I further understand the risks associated with the activity and the hazards that may be presented whether negligent or intentional.

I hereby acknowledge, affirm and agree that, at all times I am participating in training, I do so at my own risk and will exercise the highest degree of care and caution for my own personal safety and the safety of others.

This agreement and all representations made herein shall apply to and bind myself, my heirs, assigns and representatives.  It is my intention that this agreement be as broad and inclusive as permitted by law.  In the event that any portion of the agreement is determined to be invalid, such invalid portion shall be severed and the remaining provisions of the agreement shall remain in full force and effect.

I have read this assumption of risk agreement, fully understand its terms, and I understand and acknowledge it freely and voluntarily without any inducement.
