Are you looking to equip yourself with a new set of skills that could lead to future work? Or maybe you’ve already done some route setting and are looking to reconcile your existing experience with a professional qualification?
This two-day direct entry qualification course will teach you the fundamentals of roped route setting on commercial climbing walls and will provide you with a nationally recognised Route Setting Association (RSA) Level 2 qualification.

The course is also approved for 1 MTA or 2 AMI CPD points.
The course is intended for climbers who have a have a basic level of rope-work skills, can lead / belay and have the ability to lead F6b indoors comfortably. The course is also appropriate for designated route setter rescuers. All equipment is provided.
