About the Course


Monday to Friday. Early starts and long days.

Day 1: 5705 23 Ave SE, Calgary, AB  (Subject to change)


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.

The required evening sessions will consist of Team Leader topics such as rescue pre-planning, command and communications, strategy and tactics of rope and confined space rescues, 10:1 SSSF, SWL WLL and MBS, Redundancy, Is Stronger Better? , and Small Team tactics.

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

Field topics may include:

Highlines and double reeve systems

Skate Blocks

TTRS and DMDB choices and consequences


AHD failures
