Rope Rescue Specialist (RRS)

The Rope Rescue Specialist (RRS) course is for rope rescue team members who already have completed a comprehensive basic training and want to continue to specialise. This training continues where the RRT course finishes. The RRS course examines advanced technical solutions. It elaborates on the use of multi-pods, monopod and A-frames, various configurations of steep, diagonal and horizontal spans, the use of multiple track lines in highline operations, industrial lead climbing, loads and forces, incident management and scenario training. This training is consistent with NFPA 1670 and 1006 standards for technician level. This course was formerly known as Rope Rescue Technician Advanced (RRTA).
