Rigging Lab | The Elite Rope Training Facility of Rescue Response Gear
2014 course calendar below, inquire and enroll now!
The Rigging Lab at Rescue Response Gear, a state of the art rope access and rope rescue training facility, was designed with your training experience in mind and for the purpose of providing top quality, industry standard training in tandem with elite instructors.
In the Rigging Lab our goal is to teach the technique as well as the physics behind the technique so as to arm students with a complete understanding of the reason behind the action. You will come out of the lab exhibiting a comprehensive knowledge of the spectrum of techniques applicable to your niche, with an understanding of the strengths and limits of those techniques, with the decision making capabilities for quick evaluation in applying relevant techniques to real-life scenarios and with the foundation of knowing the "why" behind it all.
During designated portions of most course schedules you'll be "in class" outside surrounded by central Oregon's beautiful Cascade mountains learning your craft in the high desert while, at times, possibly "rehearsing the maneuver" at world renowned Smith Rock State Park. Once out of the lab you'll be equipped for the vertical challenges ahead and sure to come back... guaranteed! Come and rig up.
Our instructors possess a solid background of experience and training. The wide scope of their background is a deep well from which to draw information applicable to the training needs of the student. This in-depth understanding and mastery of subject matter coupled with relevant, ingenious instructional delivery promises our students a top quality learning experience... professional instruction at its best.

Another kudo of the Rigging Lab, it will double as a filming location for Raven Collective Media, the media professionals of "Brand In Use" who you may have recognized as those responsible for the production of the latest Rescue Response Gear videos. Working in coordination with training class sessions in some cases they'll be on scene shooting video of students in real-time. It is quite possible you could find yourself playing a role in a future video feature produced from those that many within the rescue industry have come to respect and appreciate.
This course is congruent to the requirements of NFPA 1006 for Rope Rescue Technical Rescuer. The participant in this course will receive state-of-the-art training in applied studies of force multipliers, construction of elevated anchor systems over difficult edges, and in the rigging of horizontal systems.
Course Dates: May 14 - May 16 Enrollment status: Open
This three day workshop crosspolinates high standard recreational climbing skills, AMGA recognized techniques and information with the gear and systems standards compliance of the new NFPA 1983 "T" certification, with practicality being informed by the NFPA 1006 Technicians information and skills demands.
