A Traditional High Ropes course is usually a site that uses roped belay systems where participants belay each other (assisted belay systems), and may include elements such as a Leap of Faith or Jacob’s Ladder.
They are primarily designed for developmental or educational purposes. ERCA Instructor qualifications are recognised at many ropes courses throughout the UK, Europe and other countries across the world.
This course follows the ERCA syllabus for the Traditional High Ropes Instructor Qualification and is fully compliant with EN15567 Part 2.

COURSE PRE-REQUISITES
•Participants must be of a minimum age of 18 years old
•Hold a valid First Aid certificate
•Physically fit enough to take part in a ropes course activity
•Capable of working at height

Participants will leave with modules A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J. Module K (first aid) and missions will need to be completed locally to complete the award.

ERCA Generic Rescuer
Wed 10th (9:00am) to Fri 12th Jul (5:30pm)
Where: 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.
