Medical Considerations In Rope Rescue (8hrs)



This 1-day Medical Considerations In Rope Rescue clinic was designed to bridge the gap between technical rope rescue and medical training.

Too often teams separate their rope rescue and medical training and don’t get the chance to practice their patient care in a technical environment. This high level clinic will provide an opportunity to put these skills together during technical rope scenarios with simulated patients who require medical care. From harness trauma to hip injuries to hypothermia.

This course is entirely field-based with no in-class delivery.

Training Maintenance

If you have a group that would like to review their training together, the training maintenance program may be right for you.

Your group pays the instructor’s daily teaching fee and travel costs associated with bringing the instructor to your training location, along with an annual fee to be part of the maintenance program. This is generally a pretty reasonable approach for training departments because:

  • it allows us to deliver the training in small chunks every year, rather than in one big chunk every three years
  • it gives department members more annual hands-on time with their skills
  • new members can integrate into maintenance programs by jumping on an open course from our public schedule

We track your members, and their status on course content completion within a three year cycle, which mirrors a traditional three year recertification cycle.  It’s an excellent value for the cost, and allows you to review your skills in your own backyard.

The training maintenance program replaces the need to recertifiy your training on a traditional three year recertification cycle.

Sorry – there’s no individual audit program available for this course.
