About the Course
Advanced Rigging and Rescue Workshop
This open enrolment workshop is designed for groups or individuals looking to broaden their rope rigging skills. Teaching student the concepts and logic which underpin complex rigging systems. Combining theory and practical elements using the most modern equipment and techniques available. We will use technically difficult scenarios to push students to use complex rigging and knotcraft. Lightweight AHD's are used extensively to promote a logic and reasoned based approach to rescue rigging. We construct artificial anchors and directionals using modern lightweight, low stretch cords. Creating high strength, static, pre-tensioned and elevated rigging.
Advanced knotcraft for modern rigging.
We firmly believe that for clean and efficient rigging, advanced knotcraft is essential.
"If knots are our paintbrushes, the Alpine and Eight are the wide brush and roller. If clean rigging is ART, some finer brushes are required"
Efficient knotcraft, knowledge and selection, allows system construction to be swift and efficient. Complex pre-tensioned and elevated rigging or directionals can be installed exactly where required, ensuring the operation can be completed safely and efficiently, with minimum effort and anchor forces.
Knots are tools in the riggers toolbox.
After covering detailed theory, we move into a series of practical demonstrations and scenarios. Enabling students to get hands on with practical skills and techniques.
