The purpose of the Tactical Rope Access Course (TRAC) is to provide SWAT team members and SWAT medics with vertical access capabilities applicable to a full spectrum of environments (urban through mountain) and variable operational constraints. The course covers new equipment technology, rope access standards, descending, ascending, rescue, anchors, and more. Throughout the course students will use the PACE (Primary, Alternate, Contingency, Emergency) methodology. TRAC techniques and equipment selection takes into account that many end users are not full time “rope-handlers”, where vertical access or rescue may not be their primary, secondary or even tertiary team function. For this reason, we deemphasize many “hallmarks” of traditional courses such as memorizing numerous and complicated knots. We prefer to teach various wraps and hitches due to their inherent ease to recall, execute, and utilize under the innate stressors of high risk tactical operations.
