Courses Running at Vertex

Why not come to Burnbake for your ERCA or Vertex Training Courses?

Throughout the year we run ERCA courses and Vertex Training courses here at Burnbake in Dorset for both individuals and groups. It's a great training venue, you get away from your own working environment, allowing you to concentrate fully on the course and get the most out of it.

If you want to keep the cost down, Burnbake Campsite is just opposite the ropes course. We have a basic kitchen, washing facilities including a shower, and use of the training room in the evenings just to chill out or to do some studying. There is free Wi-Fi available.

2022 Courses

  • ERCA Trainers and Aspirant Trainers CPD Day on 3rd May, 2022 at Burnbake Ropes Course from 10am to 4pm

    Workshops will be run, monitored and delivered by Kerry Jury – ERCA Master Trainer and Steve Woods – Vertex Training

    In the morning we will look at trainers’ safety and lone working at height. As a trainer we will often be onsite delivering training where we will, at some point, work at height before our group are competent and in anyway ready to rescue or recover us to the ground. So, how do we prepare for these types of situations and what options are available to us.

    In the afternoon we will look at remembering the Active Rescue on the Generic Rescue Syllabus. One of the common bits of feedback we get from our training team is “I haven’t done an active rescue in a while”. So, in the afternoon we will be playing with active rescues and how to resolve some common problems.

    If you would like a place on the day, please contact The cost for the day is £30 plus VAT and you will need to supply your own lunch
