/ High Ropes Course Instructors - Straw Poll
If so, what process and/or quals were there for staff before they could work on it and what refreshers took place?
Do you have lead instructors?
Just gathering a bit of info about common practice.
It was all in house training at the courses I have worked on. every so often there was a spot check of either a full session or a senior instructor just popped up to have a look at your session then popped off again.
However, some courses I've heard of, do like some form of climbing background, often an SPA.
Hope that helps
There will be a lot of changes around this area over the next few years. We provide consulting for a number of independant high ropes courses and we strongly advice on using ERCA qualified instructors for a whole range of reasons.
Please feel free to get in contact if you require further information
