Tower Climbing & Rescue Training

ICTTCR203 – Use safe rigging practices to climb and perform rescues on telecommunications network structures*


The Tower Climbing & Rescue training course is a two day (16 hour) introductory course covering one of the more advanced sectors of industrial work at height and height safety.

If you require a standard height safety course for working at heights, please see either our Working at Heights course for industrial situations, or our Height Safety Training for Natural Surfaces course if you work on cliff faces or steep embankments.

Modern steel truss towers and masts used for communications, ropeways, high voltage power lines and a host of other tasks present significant issues to the worker who must ascend them and, in the event of mishap, rescue or be rescued from them.

Our tower training is contextualized to the student’s place of work and job focus. The main aim of the program is to be as relevant to the student’s tower climbing requirements as possible, with systems and protocols that are specific to their everyday situation.


Course Outline
During the program we cover:

  • Relevant legislation and Australian Standards
  • PPE inspection and maintenance
  • Harness fitting and use of tower specific lanyard assemblies
  • Single person anchors
  • Steel climbing skills
  • Vertical mobility (ascending and descending)
  • Hauling systems
  • Harness Hang Syndrome
  • Dealing with some emergencies (suspended operators on lanyards) and safe use of portable ladders.
