Rope Rescue Specialist RRS Advanced Training – Course



Prerequisite: Technician Certification

Course Description: The Rope Rescue Specialist/Advanced (RRS) Course is for rope rescue team members who have completed a comprehensive basic training and want to continue to specialize. This training continues where the Rope Rescue Technician (RRT) course finishes. The RRS course examines advanced technical solutions. It elaborates on the use of multi-pods, monopod and A-frames, various configurations of steep, diagonal and horizontal spans, the use of multiple track lines in highline operations, industrial lead climbing, loads and forces, incident management and scenario training. This training is consistent with the NFPA 1006 and 2500 (Formerly 1670) standards for technician level.
