Topic - High Ropes Course - SPA suitable?

Parrys_apprentice - on 18 Jun 2012
A centre near us only uses SPA holders to work on it's high ropes course.

I would think that CWA would be an equally suitable award in terms of technical rope skills and general at-height safety. I also realise that many places do perfectly adequate in-house training.

When I asked why they only use SPA holders, the reason was that SPA is the only award that will hold up in a court, should there be an incident.

Aside from the fact that the award is fairly irrelevant if you drop someone, what on earth do they mean?

The guy at the top is fairly well connected so perhaps he knows more than I do about incidents that have happened or something, but this doesn't make much sense to me.

Anyone got experience of technical advice in this area? What do you say?
