PURPOSE:

  • To provide JROTC units the means to meet the requirements set forth in CC Regulations 145-2 and 385-10.

  • To promote the use of safe and responsible techniques and equipment that are most appropriate for non-tactical cadet rappelling.

  • To preserve cadet rappelling by preventing accidents, injuries, and violations that might lead to future restrictions or prohibitions.


Rappel trainer certification

This is a class to train and certify Army ROTC/JROTC instructors to conduct cadet rappelling.  Personnel who successfully complete this training will be certified by the Commander, Western Region to conduct rappelling for Army JROTC cadets IAW Cadet Command Regulations 145-2 and 385-10. Certification will be valid for five years however annual refresher training is required.

While certification provides the authority to conduct cadet rappelling, it does not guarantee competence to do so. Individual study of the reference materials and continued practice will be required to hone and maintain instructor skills. If you don’t feel absolute confidence in your ability to conduct safe rappelling for cadets, DON’T DO IT. Seek the assistance of others, practice the techniques yourself, and get additional training before taking personal responsibility for the safety of your cadets. Remember, mothers and fathers have entrusted us with the lives of their children. There is no margin for error; no freedom to fail.
