Rescue I Training: Electric
The Rescue I Training curriculum covers the principles of evacuation and assisted rescue and the various applications of self-rescue and assisted rescue equipment for the electric utility industry. The greater portion of the class is held on an elevated structure. After becoming comfortable with the simple processes used with the equipment, the students will perform and participate in several simulated rescue scenarios
These exercises will include a variety of real-life situations:
- Access victim
- Remote victim
- Other challenging drills
Each student must have appropriate PPE, including a full body harness, fall arrest lanyard and any personal fall protection devices normally used. Students should be prepared to climb an actual structure several times each day.
Course Duration: 2 or 3 days (dependent upon on the rescue equipment)
Class Size: 6 students per instructor

“The training was great! Our instructor made sure we knew exactly what to do no matter what type of situation we encountered. The hands on experience we had with the rescue gear was top notch and gave us the chance to get some practical experience which is what determines how well we utilize the gear if a situation ever arises.”
-Matthew Russell, Duke Energy
“I learned a lot and its nice to be able to work hands on with the guys who actually practice what they are teaching.”
-Jesse Dienert, ConEdison
