Introducing a New Training Course
Our Rope Access Training Courses
Bill Putnam, ATS’ rope access training coordinator, teaches all of the classes we offer and administers the certification testing to approve candidates. He structures this 5-day course as a hands-on, intensive training program from which students will emerge with a knowledge of safe techniques for moving on rope. This will include learning about the proper use of rope access equipment, appropriate equipment maintenance practices, tying knots, rigging ropes, using existing anchorages or designating anchors fit for use, rigging and combining anchorages, and rescuing fellow technicians in distress, as well as the various standards, regulations, and procedures that pertain to their field. The final assessment consists of written, verbal, and practical exam sections where candidates will apply their understanding of the concepts and techniques covered during the class.
