WAH Continuing Education Program
WAH believes that knowledge and skills do not "expire" if exercised and applied on a regular basis. Most fall protection training options for "Re-training" and "re-certification" isn't a progression or growth of knowledge and skill, but often a repeat of previous training. WAH takes a different approach with a Continuing Education Program.
Looking at trades or industries that have highly skilled individuals, the training model usually involves an apprenticeship or continuing education element. WAH has developed a similar approach for fall protection and rescue. Instead of conducting the traditional days-long course every so many years, the WAH program conducts training events of less duration, but more frequently, progressing with peoples skills and abilities. WAH training programs include frequent webinars, skills checks, and rescue drills. Not only does this methodology result in a higher level of knowledge and skill, but certifications are always being refreshed so "expiry dates" are no longer applicable.
