- Rope Access for the Fire Service
Five-day course that teaches rescuers how to identify practices and rigging systems that might be useful in specialized rescue situations.
- Rope Access for Rescuers
Three or four day class (depending on the students’ pre-existing skills) will teach students the standards governing rope access and give them an understanding of basic rope access techniques.
- Industrial Rescue Managerment
Eight-hour workshop that covers the fundamentals of technical rescue, determining the costs for training, and equipping a rescue team.
- REMS Wilderness Rope Rescue
Four day course that provides rope rescue skills used for rigging REMS (Rapid Extraction Module Supprt) and wilderness search and rescue.
- Rigging Physics for Rope Rescue
Two day course that gives students a working foundation of the basic physical principles of Rope Rescue systems.
Managers, supervisors, and team leaders are often tasked with determining: 1) whether a technical rescue capability is needed at their location and, 2) the required level of rescue capability the team should have. This eight-hour workshop will ensure the students have the ability to make that determination.
This two-day course gives participants a working foundation of the basic physical principles that govern rope rescue systems. These principles include friction, tension, compression, arresting force, and force multipliers. Once these principles are understood, a variety of rigging systems will be evaluated with a specific emphasis on identifying and managing force multipliers which can undermine the integrity and safety of rescue and rope access rigging.
This four-day course provides rope rescue skills that address advanced rigging requirements typically needed for both REMS (Rapid Extraction Module Support) and wilderness search and rescue. Rigging in wilderness locations demands a greater knowledge of the use of natural anchors and advanced rope skills. Systems may need to be set up and operated with minimal equipment and manpower under extreme environmental conditions.
