Rope rescue operations level training based on NFPA 1006 (2021 Edition) job performance requirements.


This class teaches the fundamentals of rope rescue at the operations level. Students will learn about rope characteristics, hardware used in rigging, knots, anchors, belays, mechanical advantage systems, patient packaging techniques, and other rope rescue systems and concepts. Students will utilize these skills in low angle and high angle scenario-based evolutions. The skills learned in this class are truly the “bread and butter” of rope rescue.

The class is completed in two separate steps. First, the student completes the cognitive portion of the program online from the comfort of their own home or workplace. Upon successful completion of the online component, the student may attend the hands-on sessions scheduled for March 13-14, 2021.

This class is designed for a small group, so seats are limited!

Price includes enrollment in the online class and a printed, full color version of the Rope Rescue Operations Blended Learning: Student Manual (approximately 60 pages).


Students must provide their own class III rescue harness, rescue helmet, rope gloves, and safety glasses.


Certificates of Continuing Education and PA DOH EMS Con-Ed credits will be issued to all students successfully completing the program.
