DEUS Competent User certification
(Larger classes available with additional DEUS Certified Intructor Trainer staff. TtT courses are limited to a 4:1 candidate/instructor ratio)
The intent of this course is to develop an agency’s internal training staff. Successful completion of this course enables the DEUS Agency Trainer to instruct the DEUS Competent User course, conduct annual skills reviews, and develop methodologies specific to the host agency’s needs without the need of an outside DEUS Certified Instructor Trainer.
TtT is an intense course requiring the Agency Trainer candidate to demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to safely perform and instruct DEUS rescue techniques.
In order for the Agency Trainer candidate to be successful, one must teach and receive feedback on methodologies used. Additionally, the Agency Trainer candidate must have direct supervision of safety methods used when checking and rigging students. This course includes classroom instruction, hands-on learning, and supervised teaching.
The host agency can include up to eight personnel either needing recertification or personnel seeking initial certification. These students are trained on day 4 of the TtT course at no additional charge as they provide the students needed to develop the Agency Trainer candidate.
The high-angle work environment has little room for error and evaluations of the Agency Trainer candidate will be blunt, thorough, and the candidate will be required to demonstrate 100% competency in each of the Competent User skill sets. This is not a course for the faint of heart as mistakes in presenting this material could lead to serious injury or death. Any candidate not being able to demonstrate 100% competency in the instruction Competent User curriculum will not receive certification. However, the DEUS Certified Instructor Trainer will make every effort to assist dedicated candidates in their pursuit of certification and will support the candidates after hours if necessary to give them additional instruction.
Day 1 - Competent User Review & Instructor level knowledge
The Agency Trainer candidate will review the core curriculum, demonstrate competency of the skills, and extensively expand the knowledge base of the techniques, safety factors and methodologies of the Competent User.

Following each session, the Agency Trainer candidate will receive a thorough evaluation by a qualified DEUS Certified Instructor Trainer. The DEUS Certified Instructor Trainer will interject during the classes only as necessary to prevent any unsafe condition.
