The course will provide the knowledge, skills and understanding to allow candidates to operate safely and effectively during rope rescue activities in their workplace, whether that be a ‘built’ or ‘natural’ environment. The programme includes access to and from the incident site, anchors and rescue system construction and twin-line rescue system operation (both with and without a stretcher).
