This course was developed to provide a variety of at-height workers the training required to use Ronin powered ascenders in the workplace.


Powered ascenders have revolutionized access to a variety of challenging work environments. As most at-height workers know, one of the most challenging parts of the day is the commute to the worksite!  Powered ascenders reduce worker fatigue and allow technicians to reach their worksite quickly without the physical exertion of climbing a structure.  When used properly, the device can also be used to hoist or lift small loads, tools, or other equipment to the worksite. Safety One developed this course with support and endorsement from the professionals at Ronin and is intended to provide workers and enthusiasts from a variety of industries with the training, hands-on experience, and certification they need to remain safe and productive.

Safety One’s Powered Ascender Training Course encompasses both classroom learning and various field exercises. Physical and mental aptitude for working at-height is required.
