Advanced Work Position and Rescue Course


Recommended Posts

The perfect Christmas gift for yourself or the one you love - or a member of your staff who's twiddling their thumbs in the run up to Christmas because they got missed off the panto rota.


Due to some drop outs we have two spare places on a two day Advanced Work Positioning and Rescue at Height for Theatre and Production course being run in London at National Centre for Circus Arts on Wed 21st and Thursday 22nd December.

The course is being delivered by RB Health and Safety Solutions. Though customised to our setting (mainly fixed roof truss access) this course will still train candidates in general advanced access and rescue skill and so will be transferable to other venues.


We were asking £300+ VAT per place on this course but owing to the last minute nature we may be open to to negotiation - particularly from freelancers. In addition, we are often looking for trained climbers to work in our venue, either to assist with circus or event rigging or as production electricians. Being trained on site would of course be an advantage (this is not a promise of work).
