Our Training & Assessment
We deliver an independent training and assessment programme for you and your staff on how to both manage and instruct on all types of ropes courses.
Our training covers the European Ropes Course Association (ERCA) standards for providing sessions on rope courses and delivering rescues.
The courses are run at your own centre to enable correct familiarisation and association with equipment for your staff. Training courses will be geared to the specific requirements of your centre or course. Ensuring that your staff have undergone robust, independent training will provide you with security and peace of mind. We also have a fantastic training venue at our base in Cumbria where we run “open” courses and have access to a variety of different ropes courses.
We will ensure that you have up to date awareness of industry regulations and how they affect you in addition to advice on maintenance, inspections and equipment.
The European Ropes Course Association (ERCA) provides qualifications to enable employees to safely operate and instruct on a variety of different courses.
Upon successfully completing training and assessment, candidates receive an ERCA certificate.
