Gravitec’s Fall Protection Train the Trainer – Advanced Program provides student trainers with the technical knowledge and resource materials necessary to deliver professional, in-house fall protection and rescue training. The Train the Trainer – Advanced program includes all of the resources necessary to conduct lecture, demonstrations and exercises of commonly used fall protection equipment and rescue systems. Student Trainers are expected to have previous experience using active fall protection systems and delivering skill-based training (i.e. first aid, rope access, vehicle operation, etc.). Employers selecting personnel as trainers should select candidates that have at-height work experience and the physical ability to climb structure and rescue students if incidents during training arise. Ideally, student trainers should have previous experience in delivering skill-based training and be familiar with public speaking, conducting demonstrations, and supervising exercises.

This program enables Train the Trainer students to deliver fall protection and rescue training that includes the use of rope descent systems as well as evacuation, assisted and suspended rescues.  If your needs as a trainer does not include the use of rope descent systems or rescue, the Train the Trainer – Basic program link may better suit your needs.  The Advanced program is designed for employers who use rope descent systems and need to train their staff how to conduct basic rescues.

This course is designed according to the training requirements of ANSI Z359.2. Gravitec Systems is an Authorized Provider accredited through the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET).
