PDQ Rescue Training
In collaboration with Sterling Rope, the PDQ Rescue System was developed to provide a lightweight self-rescue kit for use in tower, wind turbine or other work-at-height environments. Training is delivered in our purpose-built training centers in Reno, NV and Houston, TX.
PDQ training courses can also be provided at alternate facilities, provided they meet the necessary safety requirements. Please contact us if you are interested in hosting a custom course.
Our Team of certified PDQ Instructors bring years of experience working-at-height, versatility in teaching in a variety of settings, and a passion for safety and education.
