Learn the fundamentals of rescue for the wind energy industry. The second portion of this course concentrates on the various uses and applications of self-rescue and assisted rescue equipment for use on wind turbines. After becoming comfortable with the simple processes used with the equipment, the students will perform and participate in several simulated rescue scenarios.

Our goal is to provide students with the necessary knowledge and skills to be competent and confident tower technicians.

“I came into the class never having received professional training on climbing of any kind and left feeling like I could safely rescue an unconscious colleague from the top of a wind turbine. What else could I possibly ask for from a 5 day course?!”
– Duncan Cooper, Enel

“Instructors were friendly and laid back but very thorough in covering the information. There is a big difference between knowing something anecdotally and knowing something experimentally. The fact that these instructors do this sort of thing for a living allows them to bring real world experience to their instruction, rather than just theory.”
-Troy Phillips, Nordex

“With over ten years in renewables I can say this was the best instruction by any company. They made sure that you were aware of how to use the equipment. That you would be able to use it if and when the time comes. Not just going thru the motions and handing out a certificate. The classroom instruction was taught very well, and easy to follow and understand. Then it was training on the real world scenario.”
-David Webb, Nordex

“I learned a lot! It’s nice to be able to work hands on with the guys who actually practice what they are teaching.”
-Jesse Dienert, ConEdison
