Equipping individuals with the skills to operate safely for over 20 years.
Whether you know a little bit about fall protection or nothing at all, we can help you understand everything you need to know to stay safe while working at heights. Our BC NCSO-Approved fall protection user course is taught by certified trainers who do a great job of delivering the content and helping participants understand the material.
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. It is a diligent training session.
Before working at heights, it is important to know how to properly identify potential hazards and select the appropriate means to protect yourself. At Haland Learning, we want to help you stay as safe as possible. That is why our fall protection user course focuses on teaching the concepts needed to ensure that anyone working at heights can think critically about the task at hand and make the best decision for the current situation.
We care about learning accessibility. Our fall protection user course has been reviewed by a third party to assess the English level required to successfully participate and complete the course, as well as suggestions on how to improve accessibility. Our team is continuing to work on improving our courses accessibility to allow more people to participate and understand important information about fall protection.
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:
If you’re taking the in-person course, no equipment or special PPE is required.
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.
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.
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.
