EHAT/Aerial Rescue Empower the Educator

In light of COVID-19, we are currently examining the format for this program to ensure the health and safety of participants and our instructors. More information will be posted soon.

Learn from NATS Master Instructors of empowering education techniques in this 5-day, transformational, hands-on immersive experience. You will be inspired to think differently, understand the “why” (understanding the “why” is one of the most empowering ways to approach education), and break down personal barriers to unleash the educator within you to rise to your ultimate potential.

Participant Pre-Qualification: Participants must provide validated documentation showing 5 years of applicable work experience and be pre-qualified as competent and experienced climbers or aerial lift operators. The attached registration form must be filled out.

Participant Competency Testing: Each participant will be required to complete an OSHA-validated competency assessment in the following disciplines:
  • Basic Personal Protective (PPE) Inspection Safety and Use
  • Fall Protection PPE Inspection Safety and Use
  • Job Briefing Job-site Safety and Emergency Action Planning
  • Electrical Hazard Awareness Training (both a written assessment and hands-on assessment)
  • Insulated Protective Equipment (IPE) Live Line Tool Inspection, Use and Testing
  • Arborist Aerial Rescue (Climbing)
  • Arborist Aerial Rescue (Aerial Lift)
  • Empower the Educator Peer-to-Peer Teach Back*
Upon successful completion, each of the above topics will result in a Certificate of Qualification, good for up to 3 years (36 months) from the date of issue. If a participant does not successfully complete the competency assessment, they will receive a Certificate of Completion, good for 1 year (12 months), and have the opportunity to be reassessed within 12 months of the course date. * Successful completion of the Peer-to-Peer Teach Backs will result in a Certificate of Completion due to only part of a course being observed and evaluated during the teach back not an entire course.
