This course has a pre-requisite of a documented six months of tower climbing experience. The employer must attest to the fact that the student is recognized as having the authority of a "Competent Person" (as defined by OSHA) on a job site. The student must have completed Comtrain's 4th Edition Basic Authorized Climber/Rescuer course within the last 12 months.
Competent Climber/Rescuer Certification is valid for 2 years from the date of training
DAY 1: The first day is spent in the classroom with the 2-day BASIC Tower Climbing Safety and Rescue students.
The second day begins in the classroom with a review, followed by a written examination covering the previous day's material. Requirements and expectations are all the same as for students going only through basic level, and advanced climber candidates mobilize at the tower with the rest of the class.
At the tower, all students participate in the pre-climb activities and all tower exercises.
(See the Basic Authorized Climber/Rescuer class information for full details.)
Advanced candidates remain for the third day and will be required to complete a series of advanced field exercises on a communications tower. Demonstrations will include rigging skills, knot tying and four rescue exercises with differing levels of utilization of equipment & techniques needed for accomplishing the exercises.
