Rope Rescue Technician (RRT)

The RRT course prepares rescuers to effectively handle high angle emergency situations where rope and cable systems are required.


The Rope Rescue Technician (RRT) course covers concepts and techniques to enable small teams to undertake technical rope rescues. A building block approach is used throughout the course so that candidates can progress from key concepts through to the rigging and operation of full systems for raising, lowering and highline rescues.

This Rescue 3 International training course provides a 3-year certification and online access to the Rescue 3 International certified members page.
