Rope Rescue Technician training at Roco RescueIf you have completed one of our Confined Space Technician courses, then you are already on your way to becoming a Rope Rescue Technician. The primary focus of this 40-hour course is to build upon the core skills already learned and provide the additional competencies needed to meet the job performance requirements listed in NFPA 1006 and 1670 (Rope Rescue Technician).

Complex elevated or high angle rope rescue operations require advanced rope skills. Roco’s Rope Rescue Technician completes those skill requirements and includes technical skills such as rope ascension, high-lines and knot passing. Team response capabilities for technical rope rescue operations will be enhanced by the extensive problem-solving exercises and rapid deployment drills offered in this course.

Teaching and practice stations prepare students for certification testing, which includes individual skills proficiency, scenario-based performance evaluations and written exam. Roco Certification is valid for two years and can be renewed by completing our Rope Rescue Recertification program.
