Our Instructors

Our Personnel

We only hire people who have a long history of using their skills in real life situations. As a result, our personnel are subject matter experts before they even start working for us. They are highly conversant with the application of the latest developments in the theory and practice of technical rescue and wilderness medicine. In addition, we require all our personnel to come already equipped with great personalities and the mindset required to really connect with clients in order to meet their needs.

Technical Rescue Instructors

Our technical rescue instructors regularly work in high-risk environments including swiftwater or confined space and utilize technical rope systems with as much ease as it takes most people to make breakfast. This means that your training is conducted in a safe environment. It also means they undersetand how to break complex skills down into simple, logical progressions that are easy to learn ... and remember. 

Wilderness Medical Instructors

Our wilderness medical instructors are all medical rescue professionals who actively work in remote or unconventional settings but are also experienced educators, researchers and advocates for healthcare in adverse conditions. What’s more, our consistent and rigorous instructor training process ensures that we use a logical, systems-based approach to teach complex medical subjects in a way that makes sense.

Standby Rescue Technicians

We apply the same rigorous standards to our standby rescue technicans. Often, our clients would rather hire us to provide a standby rescue team than take on the time and expense of training their own personnel to meet safety and rescue requirements for challenging environments -- short or long term. As a result, clients know they are getting subject matter experts who understand safe work procedures and how to prevent accidents from happening in the first place. This is the kind of peace of mind that brings our clients back again and again for a range of projects from a few hours to many months.

TESTIMONIALS

Steve McKinlay
Firefighter Candidate

My instructor Kit was a complete professional with his subject. He was personable and encouraged questions - he also constantly asked questions to check for understanding. There was no time spent standing around, and we always knew what our goals were during scenarios. I had a fun experience during my Operations ropes course, and Kit heightened my desire to be a fire fighter.
