Spar Pole Rigging
2-Day Module
Have you ever had to use a rope to help lower down and 'catch' wood?

Have you experienced near misses, high risks, or property damage when dropping, or 'catching' large sections of trees?

This course is designed to educate tree climbers and/or aerial lift operators in shock load, potential energy and reactive forces of rigging heavy wood where the rigging point is below the load. Basic training in specific techniques and tools for the rigging of wood, butt hitching, knot and hitch tying are major components of this course. Advantages and limitations of rope and hardware configurations are examined and analyzed in the course. This course involves hand's on learning and coaching with instructors.

The training content of this course is also covered in the Production Tree Removal & Rigging course.

* Due to license & insurance requirements, any participants wanting to perform work with an aerial lift device during the training program must arrange to bring their own device.
