The new, highly anticipated 50-hour Roco Urban/Industrial Rescue Essentials™ course replaces the previous Roco Industrial Rescue I/II™ and is the starting point for rescuers working on rope and in confined spaces. This newly designed hands-on training course is for rescuers who respond to emergencies ranging from the depths of a confined space to the heights of an elevated structure or industrial platform.
Participants will be provided an opportunity to become proficient at utilizing some of the most current equipment in the rescue world while learning and practicing safe, efficient, and proven rescue techniques. These skills will allow them to perform effectively in the rigorous environments faced by urban and industrial rescuers.
For courses conducted at the Roco Training Center (RTC), participants will practice rescue operations from all six (6) confined space types including rescues from elevated vessels and towers. Simulated rescues from IDLH-type atmospheres that require the use of breathing air (SCBA) will also be included. These realistic scenarios can be used to document practice requirements required by OSHA 1910.146.
Students will also perform Suspended Worker Rescue (workers suspended from fall protection), as well as learn skills to perform rescue in offshore platform environments. Classroom lecture will cover applicable OSHA, ANSI and NFPA standards as well as Authorized Entrant, Attendant and Supervisor training.
