Site specific TRAININGS

Safety is paramount when dealing with ropes courses and ARCB believes that conductors and supervisors are the vital link in maintaining the safe operation of ropes course programs.  The Adventure Activity Standards for Challenge Ropes Courses “2.1 COMPETENCIES OF SUPERVISORS AND CONDUCTORS” states that people working on ropes courses should be trained at least to the equivalent units of competency of the National Outdoor Recreation Industry Training Package.

 

ARCB can personalise a training to suit your Ropes Course elements while maintaining the curriculum, this ensures you are learning what is required. Our extensive experience working on ropes courses in different countries over a number of years give us a broad knowledge of challenge courses and how they work.

As industry standards are continually evolving, we recommend refresher courses be conducted each year to keep your staff up to date with current standards.  The annual inspection of your ropes course is a great time to get everyone together and build on your skill set.  We can personalise a course to compliment your program and ropes course.  Please feel free to contact us to obtain a free quote.

Nationally Recognised Trainings

ARCB works directly with TAFE organisations and RTO’s to allow you or your staff to obtain the most up to date qualifications in this field.  These qualifications will not only improve your skills but will help you gain employment in the outdoor industry. With the majority of camps using ropes courses in their programs, these qualifications are an asset to your portfolio.
