Standard Climbing & Aerial Rescue

Aerial rescue

The standard climbing course takes candidates through the safety requirements, pre-operational checks, relevant tools and equipment, safe ascension and descent from a tree of a low-risk nature. The course is carefully balanced between comprehensive theory delivery and hands-on practical training.

This course is usually delivered in conjunction with Complex Climbing and Aerial Rescue; however, candidates who want to complete Standard Climbing only are able to do so.
