AHS Rescue has a reputation for extensive knowledge and expertise in technical rescue equipment and training, including high angle or artificial high directional training. AHS Rescue partners with Ropes That Rescue to offer the Artificial High Directional Workshop (AHDW), a 7-day advanced level course for rope access professionals and emergency responders.

This in-depth course is suited for a “train the trainer” class with information related to instructors of rope rescue pertaining to the proper use of any manufactured high directional.  In addition, this class presents the types of hazards involved within confined spaces, and how to maximize safety. There is no prerequisite required, although the Personal Rescue Skills Workshop (PSRW) is recommended.  

The AHDW is a hands-on training course covering the correct implementation and use of artificial high directionals in wilderness and industrial settings.  AHDW teaches professionals working with rope access the many benefits of using constructed frames in their work with proven high angle rope rescue techniques.  This course touches on the use of advanced pulley systems, highlines and offsets, although focus is on constructed frames in general.

Students will learn the basic physics of high directionals with extensive knot craft lessons for securing the Arizona Vortex in several advanced setup positions, and the proper set-up method for any manufactured or improvised AHD.  This extensive course also covers working with the Arizona Vortex bipod, monopod (gin pole), V frame, double A frame setups, tandem AHDs and so much more.
