Technical Rescuer Certification Classes

The Emergency Services Training Center has scheduled a Saturday Academy for technical rescuer ropes certification. This academy is based on the 2008 ropes specialty.  The North Carolina Office of State Fire Marshal has allowed currently certified technical rescuers to upgrade to the 2013 standard by successful completion of the ropes specialty course. The deadline for this grace period is December 31, 2017. This academy is open enrollment and has a total of 59 scheduled hours over six Saturdays.  Students are to bring ropes PPE for each class.  Pre-registration is required. Please call the training center at 910-272-3330 or complete a registration form by linking on the pre-registration link on our home page.
