Introduction to Rope Access for Rescue

About the Class

This class will introduce a selection of Rope Access techniques specifically chosen to improve the rescuer's ability to move through a static rope system. Most of the class will be at height moving through rope obstacles along with system evaluation and gear inspection. This course does not replace a SPRAT or IRATA Rope Access course; it is intended to expand a rescuer’s existing skill set.

This course is held at the ProSafety & Rescue's indoor training facility in Bakersfield, CA. The facility was a newspaper printing plant that has been converted into a world-class rope rescue and rope access training center. The 100% climate-controlled building features an extremely high ceiling, numerous platforms, observation decks, trusses, confined space props, elevator shafts, multiple industrial structures, and a modern classroom.

Skills Taught

Inspect personal equipment, perform job safety analysis, rig simple anchors, ascend and descend ropes, knot pass on ascent and descent, edge transition without high directional help, simple pickoff rescues from ascent and descent, rope to rope transfers, maneuver through a re-anchor and maneuver through a deviation.
