The Rope Rescue Specialist (RRS) course is for rope rescue team members who already have completed a comprehensive basic training and want to continue to specialize. This training continues where the RRT course finishes. The RRS course examines advanced technical solutions. It elaborates on the use of multi-pods, monopod and A-frames, various configurations of steep, diagonal and horizontal spans, the use of multiple track lines in highline operations, industrial lead climbing, loads and forces, incident management and scenario training. This training is consistent with NFPA 1670 and 1006 standards for technician level.
The Rope Rescue Technician (RRT) course covers concepts and techniques to enable small teams to undertake technical rope rescues. A building block approach is used throughout the course so that candidates can progress from key concepts through to the rigging and operation of full systems for raising, lowering and highline rescues.
The Rope Rescue Operator (RRO) course introduces the knowledge and skills required by personnel to operate safely and effectively during rope rescues and be an active part of a rope rescue team working under the supervision of Rope Rescue Technicians.
The Rope Access for Emergency Responders course is aimed at members of technical rope rescue teams who want to become proficient in rope access techniques. This course is specifically aimed at emergency services and not for industrial technical rope rescue.
Everyone who works at height may be faced with a colleague who has fallen and is hanging helplessly in his fall protection system. The Co-Worker Rescue at Heights course teaches participants to deal with that situation. Using simple techniques and industry standard equipment, you will learn how you can free a colleague from a dangerous situation after they have dropped into their fall arrest system. The rapid release of this trapped person must be your highest priority, to prevent further injury. In accordance with the law on working conditions and the consequent duty of care, an employer is required to prepare employees for this possible scenario. Generally, with a few simple tools, this problem can easily be solved.
The Safe Work at Heights course provides insight into the dangers that workers face when working at height. Often, workers are faced with working at height during their jobs. Employment regulations clearly state that this must be done safely. During this course, students will learn how to properly use a variety of fall arrest resources, such as harnesses, lines, lanyards and industrial fall arresters. The course covers, in detail, how these resources should be used in lifts, ladder trucks, and with a roof set, as used by fire services.
Rope Specialty Courses
This course integrates the most current technology and research on Tower Safety, Climbing, and Rescue from throughout the world, and utilizes “discovery learning” to teach skills necessary to safely effect work in and around towers.
The Wind Turbine Operator course is for workers operating in and on wind turbines. Wind turbines pose some special challenges: they are often in rural areas and/or are difficult to reach. Within wind turbines, workers face further challenges: workers are working in pairs or small groups, in difficult to reach and potentially confined spaces, where a rescue is a challenging task for co-workers and/or fire and rescue services. Therefore, people need to work as safely as possible at all times, following set standards, national laws and regulations, and company-specific standards and procedures. Due to its international relationships, where instructors face these challenges from different perspectives (safe working, fire and rescue), Rescue 3 has developed the Wind Turbine Operator course to help organizations maintain high safety standards at all times. Rescue 3 provides an agreed-upon international-certified training program to their training providers and instructors, to help them provide up-to-date information in this rapidly growing market of renewable energy.
