The RRS course gives in-depth instruction to rescuers to bring their knowledge of rope rescue situations to a higher level of mastery.


The Rope Rescue Specialist (RRS) course is for rope rescue team members who already have completed a comprehensive basic training and want to continue to specialize.

This training is consistent with NFPA 1670 and 1006 standards for technician level.
