I am trying to find out how do I go about writing a script and using it to reload the configurations of cisco routers at a predefined time. We are building a lab for our techs to train on but need to have the ability for the routers to have a fresh configuration on them when a tech uses his time slot. Has anyone done this before or something similar?

Piece of cake.
Store the "fresh" config on a tftp server

Use the command
Router#copy tftp:\\<ipaddress>\filename startup-config
Router#reload at HH:mm

lrmoore,
 Thank you for the reply and I have thought of that solution. The one question that I have about it follows.

Would this limit the IP addresses available to use on the ethernet inf.  Say that the TFTP server is 192.168.1.13. How would this work if one of the techs configures the rack using the 10.0.0.0 network?

As long as the PIX has a route to the TFTP server subnet, there is no problem. It does not have to be on the same subnet as the interface.
