ASAR Ropes and Rigging Training

Ropes and Rigging Training for Wildnerness & Urban Situations

The ASAR Ropes and Rigging course is designed to apply in both wilderness and urban situations. Whether you are rappelling into a basement, enclosure or rigging for a victim raise out of a drainage area; this class focuses on the skills needed to rig safely for rescue. Day 1 starts with basic knots and continues with progressive and redundant rigging applications; and ends on day 4 with working high angle companion animal rescue scenarios. Participants in this training should have basic ropes and rigging knowledge to work in this fast-paced learning environment.

This class can be combined with the LARO course to add a large animal application for a 5-day training.
