RopeLab 2-day Workshop

Where:

Northeastern Illinois Public Safety Training Academy
2300 Patriot Boulevard Glenview, IL 60026

When:
9am – 5pm.
Sunday 18th and Monday 19th March, 2018.

This two-day workshop introduces and explores some of the physics that can underpin a deep understanding of many of the techniques used by roping technicians. Theoretical and practical sessions will focus on equipment, knots, ratings, friction, and mechanical advantage and will explore some of the misconceptions that are commonly taught as fact.

One of the key themes for this workshop will be that Gin Poles are the ultimate teaching tool for Artificial High Directionals.  If we understand the theory of tensile and compressive forces and how they act then it is relatively straight forward to work with Gin Poles.  Once these basics are established, other multi-legged and guyed structures seem simple.

Sessions will be conducted both theoretical and practical so you will need to have prior experience working in vertical roped environments.

The content is relevant for rope access technicians, rescue operators, riggers, and anyone else who uses rope to protect or move people and loads.
