Advanced Working at Heights Rescue

Prerequisites: Working at Heights

Note: Participants must wear appropriate footwear. This program has a very significant practical component that can be physically demanding for some. Participants will have the opportunity to rescue from height, weighted mannequins from our WAH training props.

For this course we can conduct the training at your facility or at our own training facility, whichever will suit your needs best. There are some great benefits to both approaches. By completing your training on-site we can save your staff travel time, by completing your training at our facility you can benefit from our spacious training room, our state of the art hands on training space and full use of our break room.
