Forum Discussion: Preparing For Level 2 Certification

Hello, I’m currently using the workbook to get through to complete my Level 2 Certification. I’m a bit stuck on Chapter 4, Interior Practice Estimate C - M-Thomas

It has a staircase with a landing with a second section making a U-Shaped staircase over a pantry. With the upstairs portion beginning at 4’ below the level.


Choose Your Rope & Harness Training Provider Wisely

Ask the CEO of any Major Insurance Carrier or IA provider company and you will learn that crippling injuries and fatality falls from modern roof structures are a common and credible threat to Property Claims Adjusters. In proof of this fact many Insurance Carriers have outsourced their high risk roof claims to Ladder Assist type organizations and at least a dozen or more “Rope and Harness” training vendors have sprung up to capitalize on the situation over the last five years.

WARNING:  Most “Rope and Harness” training programs are based on a “Sport Climbing” model and have NO connection with modern Fall Protection as it is spelled out in OSHA regulations 1926.5 OR ANSI Standards Z-359 and NO affiliation with today’s worldwide Professional Rope Access Community.

PLEASE: Take time to educate yourself on the facts before selecting a “Rope and Harness” training program.

Looking into Catastrophe work

I currently own an adjusting business in Northern Minnesota. I am a small ma and pa show and am getting pushed out by bigger, less expensive companies. I have wanted to get into Cat work but did not plan on it this early. I am licensed in MN and OK multi lines. Do I need to get other licenses from other states? I see TX has classes to go to, do I need too? Also I will be looking into State Farm Cert. also. I have 9 years of property and auto adjusting experience, do I have a prayer getting into a few vendors or on some rosters? I appreciate your time and have enjoyed getting some information from this forum. Thanks Brian

Are there any adjusters who have completed ICAP and will it help getting deployed?

Safest "REAL" Rope & Harness Training SE Coast recommendations please

Can anyone provide me a list of REAL Rope & Harness Training places where I can get certified, most likely FL, GA or South East?
All the courses seem to be in TX or further. I've searched REI, SPRAT, AITECH in GA, other IA companies that offer "rope training," but which certification is the one OSCHA or rope professionals would agree will help me save my life on steep roofs?

The followed a link I read here on Cado:  http://catastrophecareerspecialties.blogspot.com/ which caused me to rethink where I was going to be trained. I believe I was about to pay upwards of $1000 for the whole trip (hotels, gas, course, etc), for which this post commented on, teaches improper techniques. I've worked with some adjusters who use the improper Gri-Gri techniques, hands-free standing, and knot tying that this post mentioned as "improper." 

I'm a bit confused but wish to get trained on steep roofs before I become "that guy" who wishes he had taken the safety courses because he fell. I've been climbing roofs for years without incident but something inside me is saying to get more information and proper training. 
Thanks!
