Rigging for Rescue is preparing for another great year in 2019! Our program calendar is now live on the Programs section of our website with open registration. Some notable changes to our lineup include a number of moniker adjustments. A few of the changes that can be seen are to our the Rope Rescue I – Fundamentals and the previous Specialty Techniques is now Rope Rescue II – Operational Leadership.

Increasingly, there appears to be a greater desire for rope rescue education and training to be aligned with nationally recognized standards. While our typical curriculum has usually met or exceeded such standards, we felt it would be a good step forward to ensure our content, as well as the corresponding seminar names, to be representative of both NFPA and ASTM rope rescue standards.

Participants attending Rope Rescue I – Fundamentals can expect the curriculum to include skills outlined in NFPA 1006-2017 edition, Operations Level for Rope Rescue.  Additionally, the seminar content meets and exceeds the ASTM F2954 – Standard Guide for Training for Intermediate Rope Rescuer Endorsement.

Rope Rescue II – Operational Leadership (formerly Specialty Techniques) curriculum will include skills outlined in NFPA 1006-2017 edition, Technician Level for Rope Rescue. Additionally, the seminar content meets and exceeds the ASTM F2955 – Standard Guide for Training for Advanced Rope Rescuer Endorsement.

You can expect that the Rigging for Rescue hallmark traits of critical thinking, systems analysis, and tremendous depth and breadth of information, will be part & parcel of any program you attend. We look forward to seeing you at an offering in 2019!
