All ENSA North America practical training exercises are implemented under a “Skills Based Evolution Process” which the student experiences as a layering approach, whereby a basic foundation is established, and through reaffirmation and confirmation, additional practical skills are applied to effectively demonstrate and apply through hands-on experiences the complexities of work and rescue at height, achieving success through confidence by all who participate.

Reaffirmation through testing is applied with the addition of correction to 100%. This unique philosophy in learning ensures all incorrectly answered test questions are tabled under whole group discussion to ensure maximum retention and understanding by all students.

All training programs are structured upon a pass or fail determination criteria and are in accordance with ANSI Z490.1 – 2009 Criteria for accepted practices in safety, health, and environmental training and harmonized to Z10 American National Standard — Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems.

Note: Students must be medically and physically fit with a desire to work at heights. The training environment may require the use of specialized access methods such as those employed within suspension and rope access practices. These practices may be utilized as effective safety tools within the delivery of this program. They are not to be considered trained upon within this program.
