On July 12-13 in Chesapeake, Virginia, I had the pleasure of  watching Master Instructor Jack Sullivan teach Train-The -Trainer  for,  The second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2). National Traffic Incident Management Responder Training Program  The class had someone from all TIM groups and had a friendly free flow of information for the class on TIM in their chosen field. Once again I could see the importance of  planning and training in the classroom for events of an emergency scene.
