Vertical Skills Class

 
 
 
 
 
 

Class Description

Our newest CMC class will introduce a selection of Rope Access techniques specifically chosen to improve the rescuer’s ability to move independently on rope. Taking place in a state-of-the-art, climate-controlled facility with easy travel logistics, students will use industry-leading equipment to move on rope and learn how to better support rescues in challenging environments. When the number of rescuers is limited, or the problem requires vertical movement, the ability to operate on a static line may offer the best solution for reaching the patient. Whether the setting is a high tower, industrial facility, or a backcountry cliff, learning these valuable techniques will allow rescuers to be a greater asset to their team. This course is condensed, cost-effective, and entirely focused on rescuers who want to improve in real world situations. This course does not replace a SPRAT or IRATA Rope Access course; it is intended to expand a rescuer’s existing skill set. Graduates will receive a CMC School certificate of completion.

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.
