This Vertical Rescue Course is designed for students who are required to undertake vertical rescue operations as a member of a rescue team.

The training course is very ‘hands on’ with 75% of the time being ‘on ropes’ and performing rescue scenarios.

Various types of equipment can be covered depending on the complexity of the types of rescue methods applicable at the site. Training and course subjects will be completely tailored to the requirements of the worksite. Following the training course, all competent personnel shall be capable of responding and controlling various on-site rope rescue emergencies.

This training program is rescue focused and not designed for general “working at heights” workers. Successful completion enables the participant to assess a scene, assess casualties and assist in performing rescues in a variety of situations.
