Rope Rescue Training
AHS Rescue is well known for our expertise and extraordinary service in the field of rope rescue training conducted with the best equipment in the industry.
AHS Rescue is well known for our expertise and extraordinary service in the field of rope rescue training conducted with the best equipment in the industry. For more than 15 years, AHS Rescue has been a valued supplier to commercial and government entities with technical rescue training and the most recognized names in rigging and search and rescue equipment. We provide equipment that lives depend on.
AHS Rescue works together with Ropes That Rescue to provide comprehensive hands-on technical rope rescue training from instructors that are practicing rope rescues in the field. Students benefit from this practical experience, and instructors gain from courses designed to “train the trainer”.
This partnership allows us to provide the most effective technical rope rescue training, with high performance yet affordable equipment.
Rope Rescue Training Workshops
AHS Rescue provides eleven courses covering rope rescue and rope access technician training from one of the nation’s leaders in the field. To experience the majority of all potential situations, there are three courses that stand out as comprehensive in nature and complement each other nicely. The Personal Skills Rescue Workshop along with the Team Skills Rescue Workshop will teach you 90% of rope rescues performed in the wilderness and industrial locations.
The remaining 10% can be learned from the Advanced Skills Rescue Workshop, which is a rigorous course that enhances upon the first two. You will enjoy jumping right in with a field exercise designed to assess the skill level of all team (class) members.
Personal Skills Rescue Workshop (PSRW) – While physically demanding with on rope time, this class is often referred to as one of the most enjoyable and interactive courses. The 7-day PSRW covers rebelays, passing knots with added emphasis on knot skills, rope to rope transfers, and problem-solving skills. Important definitions are explained in detail and the student will become familiar with all gear including ascenders, descenders, belays and self-belay devices.
Use in conjunction with Team Skills Rescue Workshop to encompass 90% of most rope rescues within industrial professions and wilderness locations.
Team Skills Rescue Workshop (TSRW) – The TSRW reviews learned practices from the PSRW, although taking the PSRW first is not mandatory. The 7-day TSRW course dives into more demanding rescue situations and emphasizes team building skills. Lessons focusing on the role of intermediate physics in rope rigging are spread throughout the course while students learn complex solutions to reaching, treating and extricating a victim from a high angle situation either in the wilderness or industrial locations. In the TSRW students will also learn “offsets” techniques that employ basic high angle techniques as an alternative to the more elaborate highlines systems.
Advanced Skills Rescue Workshop (ASRW) – This 7-day course is held only once per year, and complements the remaining 10% of rope rescue training covered in the first 2 courses. This is a rigorous course beginning with a field assessment, covering basic rescue scenarios then focusing on technical rescue training solutions using highlines. Students will learn various scenarios for setting up sloping, horizontal or steep highline when transporting or extricating patients.
