It is designed around specific requirements and exposures particular to wind turbines and other work at height structures where working in confinement is a requirement. It affirms through practical assessment and problem-solving exercises, the capability of participants to safely assess an emergency, communicate the need for additional resources, provide needed care for life threatening conditions, and effectively manage victim movement to the ground when necessary. This is an enhancement of the standard American or Canadian Red Cross certification (or other acceptable curriculums) and will prepare students to apply information from previous first aid and CPR/AED training to emergency situations that involve victim care at heights. This is particularly important when responding emergency medical services may be delayed by long travel distances, challenging terrain, and limited by lack of training to provide advanced medical care in elevated work spaces. Prerequisite:  WE1002 or equivalent.  Training Compliance:  American and Canadian Red Cross Standard (or equivalent), 40 CFR 1910.151, ANSI Z490.1-2009, ANSI Z359 Standards
