FAQs

Will TRS train at your location?

YES

In some cases training at your location is more cost effective and gets more of your climbers training on a tower they may actual work on. This way the students can learn in their own environment with their own equipment. (TRS can also provide class equipment for your training needs). Logistics and details would be completed prior to training at your location.

Does TRS have a training facility?

YES

In 2011 we acquired our training facility with offices, classroom and a 100’ training tower on site right out our classroom door.

With a cable grab “Lad-Safe” system we installed to the 60′ level and a working platform at 30′ allows us to work with a variety of very valuable training scenarios. Our “on site training tower” is an actual communication tower – not a prop or short section inside a warehouse.

Having our own training tower also allow us to conduct any of our fall protection courses, including but not limited to, Tower Climbing and Rescue, Vertical Fall Protection, Emergency Services Technical Rescue and all of our tower climber safety and rescue series courses.
