Rigging Lab Courses Enrollment Schedule
Length:   5 Days
September 23 September 27, 2013
Enrollment status:   Closed-May Be Re-offered
Prerequisite:   This course is a hybrid course intended for advance rope rescue technicians who are either instructing or pursuing a career as an instructor and for those wishing to complete NFPA 1006 training. Students should possess a health and fitness level commensurate with the rigors of work at height.
This course is congruent to the requirements of NFPA 1006 for Rope Rescue Technical Rescuer. The participant in this course will receive training in applied studies of force multipliers, construction of elevated anchor systems over difficult edges, and in the rigging of horizontal systems.
Along with the NFPA Tech training students will be instructed in the principles of rigging physics. In addition to the study of applied rigging physics, the participant will also learn the appropriate applications of this information in the context of the classes they may be called upon to instruct.
Especially during training, not only does a quality instructor need to be capable of presenting basic physics at the technician level; even more important, lead instructors must have a solid foundation in rigging physics that will allow a rapid recognition of potential rigging problems before they become an irreversible accident.
Daily Start Time: Course attendance begins, daily, at 8:00 A.M.
Certificate of Completion:   Upon successful completion of course, student will receive a certificate of completion. Certificates awarded for this course carry no expiration date.
Address: 601 N. Larch St., Sisters, OR 97759

Course Enrollee's Right to Cancel:
Enrollee may cancel a course at any time. If cancelled 31 or more days before the starting date of the course Rescue Response Gear will refund the amount the enrollee has previously paid toward course tuition minus a $50.00 enrollment fee. In this case Enrollee can inquire about possible transfer of tuition paid to another Rescue Response Gear course held within one year of the date of the original course. Tuition paid by Enrollees cancelling enrollment in a course 1 to 30 days before the starting date of the course or during the duration of the course is non-refundable. In this case Enrollee can inquire about possible substitution in the course by another qualified enrollee to participate in the original Enrollee's place.
Rescue Response Gear's Right To Cancel:
Rescue Response Gear retains the right to cancel a course at any time should circumstances dictate doing so. Conducting rope training courses requires a minimum number of students. Conditions beyond the control of Rescue Response Gear such as weather and/or other safety related conditions could require cancellation of the course by Rescue Response Gear. Please keep this in mind when making course related commitments such as airline, hotel and car reservations and other preparations. Rescue Response Gear is not responsible for reimbursement of any such charges. In the event of a course cancellation Rescue Response Gear will provide notification to enrolled students as early as is possible. For your protection we recommend you look into trip cancellation insurance coverage with your insurance agent or with the providers you book travel arrangements & accommodations with.
