Antony our MD has been busy working with a small team from Switzerland and Germany to design a new method for delivering the training for trainers that will be training future instructors and rescuers under the ERCA scheme. This small team has worked to produce a complete set of core and specific modules which have been approved by the ERCA board and will now be introduced.
The new modular programmes are scheduled to be introduced for the trainer training programmes initially and then the proposal is to develop modules for all levels of ERCA training.
This is seen as an exciting development for all. The candidates achieving specific modules as they progress and these modules can be applied towards other ERCA qualifications, the core modules are transferrable. Should a candidate be unfortunate to not complete their assessment programme they can now only be required to return to resit the specific module(s) necessary rather than having to attend a complete programme.
Although the Corona Virus (COVID19) situation has effected training the stage is set for when the new normal is safe to commence the training and assessment of ERCA trainers for the ropes course sector. Antony and the other ERCA Master Trainers look forward to working with candidates and the new modular scheme.
Keep any eye out on the ERCA website for further development and to apply for trainer training courses.
