This course covers everything you need to know in order to facilitate rescues from Traditional or Adventure Park ropes courses. Whenever a ropes course is in use, there should be a rescuer available should anybody need assistance – the role of the rescuer is additional to the normal duties of the instructor.

The course meets the standard for a person to be qualified as a European Ropes Course Association (ERCA) Ropes Course Rescuer, as set out in EN15567 pt 2.
