|| So anyone can supervise an abseil, right?
Supervising an abseil isn`t just about setting up a rope and showing others how to abseil, it`s about doing it in a safe, conscientious and rewarding way.
This course lasts 3 days.
We really would prefer that you already be a competent abseiler before you start this course. If you aren`t one yet, how about doing our 2-day `Safe Abseiling` course?
This is an MDT accredited course. While it is not a SAQA accredited course it does address all the requirements for SAQA 9283, but does not include the assessment which is separate.
