Best learned as an apprentice from someone that cares about you and you get individual attention with headsets of course. Mass learning on something like this gives a false sense of security imo.

While we do agree that one on one training from a skilled climber and crane operator is the best case scenario, not everyone has that available to them. This course is focused on crane safety, and teaching climbers the safest way to work with a crane and make balanced picks. During the course, we have an instructor in the tree with the climber guiding them through each pick, an instructor on the ground with the students that are not in the tree to explain the conversation going on in the tree, and the crane operator all tied in on headsets for best communication. All students must have 2 years of previous climbing experience as well. Our goal is to prevent accidents in the industry, and teaching climbers the limitations of the crane. This will be our 10th year running this course, and the feedback has been positive. Our climbing spots have already sold out since opening registration this morning, but we do still have some non-climbing spots available if you would like to come check it out for yourself.
