This short training course covers the use of the Petzl Jag Rescue Kit to pick off and lower a victim requiring rapid intervention. Suitable for industrial use and structures such as high ropes courses*.

We will provide you with a broad understanding of the uses and limitations of the equipment and the working techniques involved. During the course you will be taught to use the rescue equipment in a strictly controlled manner, always under the supervision of your trainer. Once the basics are covered, your training will progress onto realistic scenario-based ‘incidents’ within our purpose built training area.
