Competent Tower Climber/Rescuer
Course Category: Fall Protection and Rescue
At VRS™, we offer unparalleled custom instruction in tower climbing and rescue after a fall. This course was created to arm those who work at height with the tools, knowledge and expertise to climb safely, and to effect self or companion rescue quickly and efficiently using the revolutionary PMI® TowerTek™ Rescue Solution (ANSI Z359.4-2007). Stressing simplicity (no knots!) and a common-sense approach to rescue, the PMI® TowerTek™ Rescue Solution is designed to get the job done using a minimal amount of gear, thereby eliminating the head-scratching that can waste valuable seconds.
The field portion of the Competent Tower Climber/Rescuer course will teach self-rescue, companion rescue by raise, companion rescue by controlled descent and companion rescue by lowering using the PMI® TowerTek™ Rescue Solution. Suspension intolerance avoidance and treatment will also be addressed. The classroom session will focus on the importance of establishing a rescue pre-plan, OSHA compliance, PPE use, fit and inspection, and rescue theory. A strong emphasis on multiple repetitions of rescues is used to maintain a high level of participant retention.
