This Industrial at Height Rescue Technician Training Course is an additional qualification for anyone that has already completed the 3 day Working Safely at Height and Technical Rescue course.

This course covers more enhanced techniques such as stretcher transfers at height and is an extension of rescue techniques using technical and mechanised solutions.

This course is only available from MRS Training & Rescue, taught exclusively at our training centres across the UK. It includes practical training which takes place in simulated work at height situations - and is available as a City & Guilds Assured Product Certificate for an additional fee of £30.

Due to the nature of the training course and the emphasis placed on communication, there is only a provision for the assessments to be undertaken in English. Therefore, candidates for this type of training must be able to understand and speak the English language.
