Competent Instructor Upgrade $495

Comtrain offers the Competent Instructor Upgrade to 4th Edition In-House Instructors that qualify. There is no additional class attendance required. This certification allows the In-House Instructor to certify employees at the Competent Climber/Rescuer level.

Competent Instructors must:
1) Be a current 4th Edition Comtrain In-House Instructor in good standing.
2) Submit a “Registration Form and Letter of Competency for Verification of Experience” attesting to having at least 5 years of tower climbing and work experience or 2 years delivering tower safety training experience. The “Competent Climber/Rescuer Instructor” certification renews upon ReCertification.
(Certification is valid for 2 years)

The Instructor program accomplishes these primary tasks for the employer:  It teaches the instructor how to use proper applications and deliver training to employees, enables implementation of company practices and safety plans, teaches where to find answers and demonstrates proper record-keeping & documentation. This class maximizes efficiency & company legal compliance.

This class will make the instructor candidate aware of their liability and responsibilities, the employer’s liability and responsibilities and the laws and regulations pertaining to them. Instruction includes the implementation of applicable ANSI Standards and “best practices”.

Lastly, candidates will learn how to work with Comtrain’s Support Staff to acquire Certifications for their students.

The In-House Instructor must attend a ReCertification class every 24 months to stay current. Training is not authorized and therefore student certifications cannot be processed if an In-House Instructor’s certification has expired. In-House training classes must be conducted while an instructor is current for certification to be valid.

If your Instructor Certification has been expired for more than 6 months, you should call the Comtrain office to discuss ReCertification requirements.

Employers and Instructor candidates should read and understand the rules pertaining to the Comtrain In-House Instructor programs.
