Wind turbine installation and maintenance are not easy tasks. A turbine is a high-risk environment with a number of danger areas where workers are exposed to fall risk and potentially require a rescue.
This course is specifically designed for individuals who work at height on wind turbines and is a pass/fail program that incorporates extensive classroom and hands-on training. The course has both written and practical examinations that are based on the requirements of OSHA regulations and the ANSI Z359.2 standard.
The course involves a high degree of hands-on scenarios and will require workers to actively participate in rescue operations.
Students attending this course will expand their knowledge and ability on how to utilize pre-engineered rescue equipment and rescue techniques for safe and efficient rescues. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will receive a certificate recognizing that they have met OSHA and ANSI requirements as a Competent Rescuer.
