Course Description

The Rope Rescue Specialist (RRS) course is for technical rope rescue team members who already have completed a comprehensive basic training and want to continue to specialize. This training continues where the Rope Rescue Technician (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.
