Certification Exam Level 2

level 1&2
This level of certification requires additional training as well as broader program knowledge, theoretical understanding, and technical skills. In addition to the competencies of Level 1, Level 2 certification requires training in challenge course rescue procedures, the ability to safely operate climbing towers and other more complex high challenge course activities. These candidates often supervise other less experienced challenge course staff.

Candidates at this level are required to document: 11 days or 110 hours of training and a minimum of 100 challenge course program days (low and high element programming with an emphasis on highs) with 8 hours being considered a day.

The Project Adventure workshops that would fulfill these training requirements are Adventure Programming, Technical Skills Intensive and Advanced Skills and Standards, taken in that order.

  • Written and practical competency testing
