ROPE DESCENT BASICS

Gravitec’s Rope Descent Systems is an intensive three-day (24 hour) program intended for any workers who are expected to work on the roofs of tall buildings and descend over the side to conduct work. Any scope of work (architects, surveyors, glazers, inspectors, window cleaners) that must exit the roof and descend the side of buildings would benefit from the course content. The course has a heavy emphasis on descent control devices and rope descent systems. Students begin using rope descent systems on day one and throughout the balance of the course.
