Tower Safety, Rescue & Rigging Courses

In Addition to our weekly scheduled Open Enrollment Classes we can bring our training to your location! Call about scheduling a class for your Climbers and/or Riggers. Certain requirements must be met. We must have a tower for the practical portion of the training. Minimum class size applies and ample lead time is required.

Comtrain courses meet the Criteria for Accepted Practices in Safety, Health, and Environmental Training ASSE/ANSI Z490.1, the highest industry standard for training. They also meet the requirements of ASSE/ANSI Z359.2, the minimum requirements for a Comprehensive Managed Fall Protection Program, found in the ASSE/ANSI Z359 Fall Protection Code. The Comtrain Competent Tower Rigging Course addresses the new ASSE/ANSI A10.48-2016 standards.

We are proud of the fact that “A COMTRAIN CARD or CERT” has become the term commonly used to describe all tower training certifications”. Since Comtrain was the company that started the tower climbing training and certification business, our company name has become synonymous with the certification delivered by all tower training companies. The common question asked by those seeking to verify training is “do you have a comtrain card?” Climbers that receive the authentic Comtrain certification often boast that they have been “COMTRAINED”.
