VIRTUAL Fall Protection Competent Person/Equipment Inspection & Qualified Trainer

VIRTUAL Fall Protection Competent Person/Equipment Inspection & Qualified Trainer

Qualified Trainer Training

  • $2,500.00


This 4-day VIRTUAL training course series is designed to inform and prepare students on the foundational information required to meet the responsibilities of a fall prevention and protection competent person, perform fall protection equipment inspections, and be a qualified fall protection trainer per OSHA and ANSI regulations/standards.

This class is intended for an experienced individual who is responsible for providing fall protection training to their employee(s) at the awareness/authorized user level. It does NOT deem the participant a Qualified Trainer upon completion. That is the employer’s requirement.

OSHA regulations state that to be deemed “Qualified” in a fall protection area that the employee must demonstrate to their employer their ability to solve or resolve problems relating to the subject matter, the work, or the project. This course will educate the students on adult educational methodologies, ANSI training standards, and evaluate their ability to conduct a required 20 minute virtual fall protection related training presentation. Each student will be evaluated by the Honeywell instructor and their peers to determine that they have successfully demonstrated acceptable skills to train others.


The class will take place with a live Honeywell instructor through a virtual platform (A direct link to the training is sent after registration and course confirmation). Day 4 course instruction will be presented by a different Honeywell instructor from days 1-3, and a separate link to a new meeting room will be provided.

Testing and certificate download will be through Litmos: (Accounts are created upon registration).

  • A personal computer with a strong internet connection, web camera and headset (reduces noise and echoes)
  • 2-3 anchorage connectors, 2-3 harnesses, and 4-6 connecting devices for the mandatory online practical portion of this class. Equipment can be deployed, damaged, new, or scheduled for inspection.
  • We strongly recommend using more than one monitor in virtual training. In doing so, the presentation can be displayed on one, and workbooks and exercises can be displayed on the other.
  • Please join at least 15 mins. early to work through technical issues.
