Join us on May 25, 2017 at the Irmo Municipal Building for an Aerial Rescue Training Course. Co-hosted by Trees SC and ISA Southern Chapter, this hands-on course will be led by North American Training Solutions, an expert in the field of arboriculture practices. The course is designed to teach work positioning and rescue techniques used among arborists and other high-angle workers while responding to emergency situations. All levels of climbers and aerial rescuers, experienced and non-experienced, looking to increase their technical knowledge and skills as it relates to access, positioning, climbing and rescue systems are encouraged to attend. Participants are required to bring personal protection equipment and their regular climbing gear. The course is limited to 15 participants.

  • Self-rescue working at height in canopy
