Vancouver, WA – Northwest Renewable Energy Institute (NW-REI) has partnered with ENSA North America to offer two Safe Access and Rescue Certification courses. ENSA is nationally recognized as the leader in work-at-height safety rescue training. Students of NW-REI will now complete a climbing rescue course as part of the curriculum and will graduate with their ENSA certifications, giving them a significant leg up in the job market.
In addition to certifying all graduates, NW-REI will also be offering ENSA certification classes for non-students. These classes will primarily serve businesses in relevant industries that are required to re-certify their employees on a regular basis but will also be open to the public.
“The partnership between ENSA and Northwest Renewable Energy Institute will create great new opportunities for safe work at height and rescue training in wind and telecommunications” said Daniel Vasquez, the ENSA Safe Access and Rescue Instructor of NW-REI. “ENSA is a true leader in their field and we are really excited to be able to offer their training to our students. Since we’ll be offering classes at our campus here in Vancouver and on-site by request, this is also a good chance for companies looking to re-certify their climbers.”
NW-REI will be training on two pieces of ENSA certified rescue equipment, Tractel and PDQ, and may add more in the near future. ENSA is a division of Mallory Safety & Supply, a highly specialized group of work-at-height safety pioneers and experts. For years they have provided work-at-height safety rescue training, support and rigging services to the Wind Power, Telecom and Industrial markets including Water Tower, Bridges, Solar, Suspended Platforms, Steel Mills and Foundries, and work-at-height work areas in Pulp and Paper and Tower Crane Operations.
