Section One: Ladder Component Identification and 10M Ladder Climb
You must be dressed in full PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and SCBA (not on air).
You will be required to wear a safety harness for this skill.
You must correctly identify ten components of a roof and extension ladder. These components will be indicated to you by the evaluator. You will have two attempts to correctly identify all ten components. Once you’ve identified all components correctly, the evaluator will allow you to proceed with the remainder of the assessment. If you do not correctly identify all components after two attempts, you will fail the assessment.
When advised to proceed by the evaluator, climb the 10m ladder until you encounter a green taped rung. You will perform the appropriate leg lock and retrieve an axe from the ground. Once you’ve retrieved the axe you will continue to climb the ladder until you reach the red taped rung.
Once you’ve reached the red taped rung, perform a leg lock – left or right is acceptable for this rung. Remove the leg lock and continue climbing up the ladder until you reach the balcony. Place the axe on balcony, safely step off the ladder and onto the balcony, and ring the bell.
Safely climb back onto the ladder, retrieve the axe, and descend until you reach the ground.
You have 10 minutes to complete this assessment.
