About the Course

As we have had conversations at scenario training events or working with other professionals in the industry, we've come to the conclusion that there's not a lot of information out there about confined space rescue for confined space rescuers.

Sure, there are a ton of courses out there about confined spaces, but just how relevant is the material to a confined space rescuer? Confined space is a different type of rescue. You need to find people. You need to take other things into consideration. You need to know the hazards. You need to know if your ventilation is working.

This lead to the birth of the Confined Space Rescue Series — an ultimate body of work created by Ronin Safety & Rescue exclusively for Rigging Lab Academy.
