The Mountain Guide
Activity   Abseiling & Climbing
Description  So anyone can supervise an abseil, right?

Wrong!

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.

Duration
This course lasts 3 days.

Prerequisites
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?

Standardisations
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.

This course is only available full-time with a minimum of 2 students and a maximum of 8.

Course Content
Topics covered in this course are:

1. Equipment, its capabilities and limitations, correct use and storage
2. Duties of an abseil supervisor
3. Group management
4. Equipment and training standards
5. Knots
6. Anchors
7. Selecting and setting up the site

We really believe that you will NOT regret doing this course!
