Day 1 of this rope technician’s skills course is a day for the purpose of learning the rigging theory that supports sound and reliable manipulative tripod and quad-pod skills congruent with the requirements of NFPA 1670 and 1006 Technician level. Basic force multiplier theory of artificial high directional portable anchors is a key component of this Module. Days 2-3 we will fine tune our back-tying skills as they apply to guying mono-pods and bi-pods. Intermediate force multiplier theory that is applicable to portable anchors, including a working understanding of tension/compression, coefficient of friction and resultant force are key components of this Module. Days 4-5 will advance the practitioner’s knowledge when rigging high directional anchors for horizontal systems, and for advance systems that require the rigging of multiple resultants on one anchor. Not only do we continue with advanced applications of Mono-pods, bi-pods, and tripods, we will explore the relationship between compression and tension and how this knowledge can help create elevated points in seemingly impossible locations.
Course Bonus for all four courses:
Each student receives a dvd disc copy of filming of their course.
