Rope Rescue Operator (Level 3 Technician)

Duration - 5 Days :: Course Cost - £840 plus VAT

This course is designed to meet the specific needs of the emergency services and in particular the Fire and Rescue Service.  It is a course for personnel who are required to fulfil the role of Rope Rescue Operator within a rescue team and meets the team typing requirements of the National Fire Chiefs Council for Level 3 Rope Rescue Technicians.

The course will provide the knowledge, skills and understanding to allow candidates to operate safely and effectively during rope rescue activities in their workplace, whether that be a ‘built’ or ‘natural’ environment.  The programme includes access to and from the incident site, anchors and rescue system construction and twin-line rescue system operation (both with and without a stretcher).

Although not essential, to gain maximum benefit from this course candidates will have basic pre-course experience of work at height.  Ideally course applicants will have completed the Lyon 1 day Work at Height course (or equivalent) within the previous 3 years.

Members of mountain and cave rescue teams holding full ‘Operational’ status may gain direct access to this course.

The course itself has a very ‘hands-on’ bias, with the practical sessions taking place either in our purpose-built training centre at Tebay or at a number of nearby ‘natural’ venues as appropriate. Many of the practical sessions are scenario-based, providing candidates with multiple opportunities to practise their rescue skills in a variety of situations.  Student to instructor ratio will not exceed 4:1.

Following assessment, successful candidates will be issued with a Lyon Equipment Rope Rescue Operator certificate and an ID card record of training, valid for 3 years.

You may also wish to consider our Emergency Casualty Care for Work at Height and Rescue and Rooftop Working courses.
