1. Assess and determine single rescuer rescue strategy (relevant rescue method, technique, certified equipment and how to organise the rescue efforts and incident scene) for various rescue scenarios, in a WTG nacelle, tower and basement
2. Apply rescue methods and techniques in performing descending and ascending single rescuer rescue operations, from a WTG nacelle, tower and basement using a rescue stretcher and transfer board, manually operated and power-driven lowering/raising rescue system (rescue device and pulley system or similar), and other rescue equipment relevant to the participants
