Rope Rescue Technician

Sometimes good people have bad days…no one intends to get stuck, lost or injured.  When they do there is a need for first responders to have the ability to access and perform various types of technical rescues in difficult terrain to safely conduct the mission.

Our team of instructors brings first hand practical knowledge and experience working in various types of terrain with backgrounds in mountain rescue, rope access, climbing, as medical providers and helicopter operations.

We recognize you may have no experience, or have an existing skill set and are looking to further your training. We look forward to sharing skill sets to assist you in your training and operational capabilities. Training will consist of classroom and hands on practical portions, compounding as the week progresses.
