Pricing is stated for regular open enrolment training. Private class pricing may vary based on a few factors.

The 3-year expiry is NOT a regulatory requirement (no matter what anyone else tells you). This is an industry best practice.

We budget for a full day of training. This isn’t a quick “put on a harness, then go home” course. This will be a diligent training session.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of equipment do we need to bring?

It is helpful (but not mandatory) if the student has a full body harness that fits. If you’re taking the online course, you could bring:
  • Lanyard
  • Anchor Connector suitable for the type of work you do, and
  • Measuring tape
If you’re taking the in-person course, no equipment or special PPE is required.

How does the online training work?

The online training is essentially the same as the in-person training in almost every way. The ONE thing we cannot do in the online version is the harness suspension (which is optional anyway).

We host the online course through an online platform (e.g. Zoom).

Materials get shipped to the students prior to class. Shipped items will come with a prepaid return shipping label for returning gear after the class.

  • Fall Protection User Manual
  • Damaged Equipment for the inspection activity
  • Harness, Lanyard, and Anchor connector suitable for the work being done. THIS IS ONLY if the student does not already have this equipment on hand. This is an equipment LOAN to help the student have the best quality training materials available.

The certification card and hard had sticker will be mailed to the student (or client/employer) upon successful completion of the course, and RECEIPT of returned gear.

Students must have a computer (NOT just a smartphone), a private area while attending class and a high speed, stable internet connection.

Will I be able to stay awake?

Many safety courses are dry, not relevant, and boring. Really boring. If it’s not the course material, it’s the instructor. Some agencies believe they can talk AT you for hours and that you’ll somehow learn all the stuff.

We know from 20+ years of experience + current adult instructional knowledge this approach is woefully inadequate.

Every topic in the class is there for a reason. Each topic will have some type of activity the participants DO/INTERACT WITH in order to develop or confirm learning.

In summary… our courses are NOT boring. While it won’t be like going to Disneyland, participants will find themselves being engaged throughout the day, and they WILL learn something.
