It doesn’t matter whether you’re climbing or abseiling, on bolts or on gear, 20 or 200 metres off the deck – the vertical environment is inherently risky. Don’t wait until it’s too late to get the training you need.

Rescue techniques are crucial for each and every vertical enthusiast and this course is tailored specifically to the individual needs of trainees, no matter what their chosen adventure might be. Accidents happen, but the knowledge and skills you learn throughout the Vertical Rescue course are the key to confidence in our amazing outdoor playgrounds.

A Statement of Attainment is issued on successful completion – SISORSC002 Perform vertical rescues

 

The following skills will be taught and assessed throughout the course:
