Description:

Our 6-day Combination Confined Space/Rope Rescue Awareness & Operations 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 Operations 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, Awareness & Operations and Rope Rescue, Awareness & Operations.

This course normally runs in Coquitlam and North Vancouver.

Skills taught include:

  • Define a confined space
  • 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 lowering/raising operations in high-angle and confined space environments
  • Construct a multiple-point anchor system
  • Construct a compound rope mechanical advantage system
  • Ascend/Descend a fixed rope in a high-angle environment
  • Tie and use knots, bends, and hitches
  • Perform a slope rescue with a patient in a litter
