What our clients are saying…

All killer. No Filler.
- Matt S.
This course was by far one of the best trainings I’ve been fortunate to attend. The instructors were student oriented, and made us as the students their priority which led to a better training environment. This course was amazing in the fact that we had top notch instruction, followed by hands on skill stations.
- Matt S.
I have taken advanced rope classes in CT, NH and ME and I can confidently say this was the most informative, well balanced and just plain fun classes especially compacting it into a 2 day 16-hour class. All instructors were extremely knowledgeable not just about use of the systems, but rigging theory and the math behind applied forces and resultant forces, which was a nice addition that is often left out of other rope programs.
- Ryan B.
For a beginner, the technical portion of the class seemed confusing and above our capabilities. After the hands on explanation, the instructors made it seem old hat to us. Outstanding training crew!
- Stephen M.
This was hands down the best class I have ever been to. The instructors' positive attitudes as well as their ability to allow us as students to problem solve was amazing. The way the instructors presented material and coached us through the material and provided pointers, asked for our input, got to know our department SOPs, and asked us to share information between other students showed a dedication towards the craft and towards the art of teaching to each individual student. I cannot recommend Vector Rescue enough and look forward to taking more classes in the future.
- Ben R.
The instructors provided a refreshing teaching style with a "hands-off" approach, where students were allowed to work through problems, even if they were going to fail, as long as it did not endanger the safety of the students, instructors, or equipment. This provided an excellent learning environment, as the students relied on each other's experience and knowledge to correct mistakes, rather than just the instructors.
- Erik A.
Premier rope rescue training cadre in the state. Worth every minute and dime to train with Vector Rescue.
- Kyle S.
The instructors were top notch, and I learned a tremendous amount of information. I came out of the course feeling more confident in myself and the equipment. I truly enjoyed my time with the class.
