Technical Rope Rescue – Operator


Foundational rope training for slopes and supporting rescues in high angle terrain.

This course will prepare personnel to utilize simple rope systems for moving people and equipment on gentle slopes and steeper embankments. The curriculum also includes patient packaging and extrication. We use a step-by-step, hands-on approach that makes it easy to learn these skills … and easy to remember!

While this course is an NFPA 1670 Operations level course, it also meets all of the requirements of NFPA 1006 Chapter 5 (General Requirements). Participants will leave the course prepared to lead rescues in low angle terrain (slopes of less than 30 degrees) and support rescues in high angle terrain (30 degrees or more).

Please note: In order to be NFPA 1670 compliant, personnel certified to the Operator level must be supervised by a team leader certified to the Technical Rope Rescue – Technician level.

For participating in both Operator and Technician courses this would $1,525.
