About the Course

September 23 - 28, 2024

Each day begins at 8AM, and will typical finish around 5pm.

Pre-requisites: NFPA 1006 Rope/Confined Space Operations


Our 5-day Combination Confined Space/Rope Rescue Technician course is a condensed program that takes advantage of the fact that many skills crossover between both disciplines (e.g. creating a mechanical advantage pulley system). Successful participants will gain the knowledge and skills to be an Technician level rescuer as outlined in NFPA 1006, Chapters 5 & 7. Building on the Basic Rescuer foundation skills, participants will be challenged to approach technical scenarios in a High Angle environment and will be introduced to rescue in a Confined Space environment. The course includes theory in a classroom environment but focuses on a hands-on approach to learning new equipment and refining techniques.  Successful participants will be given two certificates: Confined Space Rescue Technician and Rope Rescue Technician

Skills taught include:

  • Identify types of confined spaces
  • Explain the different hazard types found in spaces
  • Mitigate hazards and perform control techniques
  • Utilize personal protective equipment
  • Comprehend basic atmospheric monitoring concepts
  • Direct a team in the operation of simple and compound rope mechanical advantage system
  • Direct a team in lowering/raising operations in high-angle and confined space environments
  • Construct single and multiple-point anchor systems
  • Construct simple, compound and complex rope mechanical advantage systems
  • Ascend/Descend a fixed rope in a high-angle environment
  • Conduct a pick-off rescue of a suspended patient
  • Conduct knot passes/load transfers
  • Lead climb a structure to access a patient
  • Tie and use knots, bends, and hitches
  • Perform a slope rescue with a patient in a litter
