Heightec – National Access & Rescue Training

Our engineers took some training recently on Tower Climbing, Rescue and RF Awareness, as our engineers are regularly strapped to very tall poles or masts we felt that  an accolade in this area might be of great benefit so two of our engineers went on this two day course to gain yet more skills for their bag! Their tuition can be carried out at their training centres, across the UK; Kendal, London or Kelvedon.

Certification is valid for 3 years and requires a 1 year revalidation, all candidates receive a training manual and certification is issued upon completion of the course.

Course Title: Tower Climbing, Rescue and RF Awareness
The Tower Climbing, Recsue and RF Awareness course covers several modules on a two day course. The course will qualify climbers to work almost entirely from within the confines of protected areas and allow them to move to more exposed areas to carry our straighforward tasks.
