You've NEVER seen a class like this!

Hours: Daily - Classroom 0700-1000 Field 1100-1600 Nightly discussion 1800-2000. – Yes, these are long hours.

Long Beach $1600 US – Due at registration

Orlando $1800 US – Due at registration - Includes group villa lodging!

This 5-day, 10+ hours per day seminar is designed for rescue and rope access team leaders. Each day will be a combination of classroom learning and preparation followed by field-testing of systems, including the failing of those systems. This failure will be followed up with the students implementing a recovery of the system and rescuing the rescuer and patient from the failed system – a truly worse case rescue scenario all while recording relevant data and documenting practices.

Attendees will have the rare-if-ever opportunity to experience failures that are usually only talked about as theory and execute recoveries from those failures.

*System failures have been carefully designed for safety and will not use live loads.
