Exponent Ropes Course Rescuer

Our Ropes Course Rescuer training offers the practical skills, technical insight and  theoretical background to lead groups on a specific ropes course. The emphasis is on program safety. Depending on the initial competences of the trainees and the nature of the ropes course, this training takes 4 to 10 days.

Ropes Course Technician training covers the following subjects:

  • general introduction to program safety and safety on ropes courses
  • technical understanding of the ropes course and equipment
  • pre-flight check of the course
  • spotting
  • knots for use by participants and/or leaders
  • belay techniques for activities on high elements
  • self-belay on high ropes course elements
  • ropes course evacuations and problem-solving
  • equipment care
  • daily ropes course maintenance

The training combines hands-on practice with presentations on theoretical background information. Participants receive an customized syllabus.

Trainees who pass the test receive a Exponent Ropes Course Technician Certificate, consistent with the EN requirements for the Rescuer (NBN EN 15567-2(2008), Sports and Recreational Facilities - Ropes Courses – Part 2: Operation Requirements). The certificate remains valid for 2 years.
