About Us

We conduct rappel instruction at your site for Law Enforcement, SWAT, Fire-Rescue, Military, and Contract Security personnel.

At Tactical Rappel Instruction, we have been instructing tactical personnel for over 19 years.  Our instructors are Certified Rappel Masters and Helicopter Rope Suspension Training (HRST) Masters. We come to your agency and train on your tower and we don’t confuse you with hidden charges to travel to you. We offer the most current curriculum, providing instruction on the newest equipment and techniques available in the industry today. This guarantees you the best and most affordable rappelling instruction available for your agency’s training dollar. In addition, it allows your tactical personnel to remain local, where you need them, when the SWAT callout comes.

We also provide students with the training items needed to complete each course; we don’t require you to buy equipment you don’t need prior to our courses.
