Using the body to assist in the cutting is allowable providing each hand remains in contact with each handle.

After this has been completed the candidate will pick up the high-rise pack, place it over their left shoulder and proceed down to the ground floor.

Candidates will be deemed to have failed if they:

  • Receive a second warning for having two hands on one handle.
  • If they are unable to achieve the task.
