ERCA Generic Rescuer

The health and safety of users and instructors is of paramount importance on ropes courses and adventure parks. There should always be a rescuer available should anyone need help.


This course is designed to cover everything you'll need to know in order to facilitate effective rescues from ropes courses and adventure parks. The role of a rescuer on a ropes course is in addition to the instructor's normal duties.

Please be aware that the skills you will learn on this course are generic and it may be more appropriate for us to deliver a site specific rescue course. If you think this might apply to you then do give us a call to discuss your needs.

The training course follows the ERCA syllabus for a Generic Rescuer and conforms to the requirements that are laid down in EN15567 Part 2. The course is delivered through a combination of practical and theory sessions.
