About Us

Robert Tuttle has worked in the Towing and Recovery Industry for over 30+ years. During this time, he has worked at almost all job positions possible in the Towing and Recovery field, from entry-level driver to field management and administration.

Throughout his long career, a vast majority of his experience has been providing Incident Management (IM) Response Services in San Antonio, Texas, one of the top ten largest cities in the nation. Robert has always found it important to share his experiences with fellow towing operators. In 2003, he founded Complete Incident Response Training (CIRT) and began developing his own formal training programs, which includes all levels of Towing and Recovery as well as other professions.

Although he had been training tow operators informally for many years, in 2003 CIRT began offering Professional Training Services to area towing companies and other consumers in need of training for the Towing and Recovery industry.

In February of 2009, CIRT became a State of Texas approved training provider for the Tow Operator Continuing Education (CE) Program that is regulated by Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation (TDLR). As you see from the Qualifications and Certifications listed below, Robert has a wide array of education and experience in First Responder fields, which provides him with a unique perspective on working with other first responders at incident management scenes. He has participated in large scale NIMS Incident Command table top exercises and field training exercises with the San Antonio Fire and Police Departments. This knowledge and experience is intergraded into CIRT's Towing and Recovery Training.

Finally, Complete Incident Response Training believes that formal training must be based on real world situations. We also strongly believe that muti-agency / muti-discipline training keeps all first responders safer at incident scenes.
