ERCA Generic Rescuer

Mon 28th (9:00am) to Wed 30th Oct (5:30pm)
Scouts Adventures Lochgoilhead, PA24 8AQ
The ERCA Generic Rescuer qualification is aimed at instructors who are already ERCA qualified (either for Adventure Park or Traditional Ropes Course) who as a designated rescuer need to be able to rescue a customer or member of staff who is stuck at height.

This course covers the rescue and recovery to the ground of participants or staff who are in need of rescue at height on any type of ropes course. For example: a member of staff becoming stuck during an operational check.
However, the aim of the course is to develop skills that can be used to avoid situations that could necessitate a rescue in the first place.
Much time is spent covering risk minimising options that enable those stuck at height to be lowered to the ground without the need for a complex rescue. The course develops the ability to assess the operations on site, consider the alternatives to reduce the risk of requiring a rescue, and choose the equipment and techniques most appropriate for a simple effective rescue.
