When the alternative is falling to the ground, proper fall protection and rescue training is paramount.

Ronin instructors do not just teach fall protection training, they work on sites where fall protection and rescue are required. Our staff has performed work at heights up to 1200’ suspended, hung in harness for over 8 hours and used a multitude of equipment.

Students can learn from our real world experiences through theory and skill based training. Our instructors continually take updates and specialized fall protection training in order to provide students with relevant and regulatory compliant training.
