This course provides attendees with a broad understanding of the skills and techniques required to carry out operational inspections of ropes courses to comply with EN15567:2015 part 2—Operational Requirements.

Operational inspections must be carried out by a competent person at least every three months, or as indicated by the manufacturer’s instructions and are intended to be more thorough than a routine (visual) inspection.
