This course provides safe access and basic rescue techniques for Telecom Climbers who need a strong foundation and understanding of the practical essentials of work-at-height safety, as well as how to carry out a successful evacuation or assist in basic rescue procedures. Training includes lowering a remote casualty and self-evacuation by descent. This course exceeds the minimum NATE requirements for Authorized Climber which recommends an 8-Hour classroom course only. The NATE Authorized criteria requires only that a Climber be able to contact a 1st Responder and be trained on the activities surrounding the 1st Responder call. ENSA’s two-day course ensures the student is not only authorized to climb, but also has the fundamentals of fall protection, inspection, and hands-on Authorized-level rescue techniques. You and your crew will know that your worker is on-the-job ready.
Competent Climber/Rescuer is ideally suited for persons who are required to coordinate and/or implement the written safe work at height and rescue procedures for their Company. A Company relies on the Competent person’s depth of knowledge and ability to maintain compliance requirements when implementing fall protection or fall rescue protocol, procedures, and systems on the jobsite. This course combines both the Competent Climber and Competent Rescuer in a three-day intensive training course specific to safe work-at-height rescue within Telecom.
