This class teaches the fundamentals of rope rescue at the operations level. Students will learn about rope characteristics, hardware used in rigging, knots, anchors, belays, mechanical advantage systems, patient packaging techniques, and other rope rescue systems and concepts. Students will utilize these skills in low angle and high angle scenario-based evolutions. The skills learned in this class are truly the “bread and butter” of rope rescue.
The class is completed in two separate steps. First, the student completes the cognitive portion of the program online from the comfort of their own home or workplace. Upon successful completion of the online component, the student will then participate in one or two days of practical skills training. Depending on the number of practical skills sessions, the student will earn one or both of the following certificates:
- Rope Rescue Operations - Low Angle (16 hours) - for 1 day of skills
- Rope Rescue Operations - High Angle (8 hours) - for 2 days of skills
This program is based on NFPA 1006 Standard for Technical Rescue Personnel Professional Qualifications (2021 edition) for the Rope Rescue Operations level.
