Ideas for 2 Days of Training
I need to solicit ideas for only two days of rope training, assuming the audience has very little to no rope experience. I have been asked to assist a local dept with a weekend of training, and given two full days to conduct this training. As a disclaimer, I'll be the first to say that I do not believe in cutting training short, or cramming into two days. I do not believe in those five day classes advertised as "Rope Technician" programs. However, I'm not necessarily trying to meet any NFPA Ops levels, just want to be of a value to these guys in the two days I have with them. I know in only two days we can't get too far with this, but want to give them a decent foundation. We had even discussed picking up another two days down the road, and build upon the initial training. I am not writing any cirriculum for any program or getting compensated for my time, but do want to assist them in this. Any thoughts on what you'd cover would be greatly appreciated.
