Climbing towers can be a hazardous job if you don’t use proper climbing techniques and fall arrest equipment. This practical program will address aspects of tower climbing to ensure each participant gains the proper knowledge to mitigate potential fall hazards and to feel comfortable working at heights on skeletal structures.
Classroom enrollments are kept to a low number to afford each student the maximum time on the tower practicing the techniques and gaining a level of comfort.
Students will receive a workbook for the class and certification upon completion.
