OUTL 354 - Rope Technician I

2 hours

Beyond a “get-to-know-your-knots” introduction, this is an advanced technical level, rope rigging course that teaches concepts and skills used by high angle search and rescue teams, firefighters, event riggers, and other professionals. Students will learn to apply the principles of mathematics and forces in the construction and operation of anchoring systems, pulley systems, and high lines. Successful completion of this course leads to NFPA 1006 Rope Technician certification. An off-campus field experience of up to four days may be required for this class. Lab Fee: 15 ($400).
Prerequisite(s): OUTL 320  or  .
