As a Mountaineering Instructor Jon Chamberlain is qualified to provide Site Specific Training and Assessment for a range of mountain based activities. He does this as a Technical Adviser for many organisations across the UK, delivering training on climbing walls, outdoor crags, ghylls, scrambles and walks.
If staff work to an agreed standard operating procedure, are well trained and assessed by a Technical Adviser, they can be responsible for groups and individuals doing activities beyond the qualifications they hold.
Where this type of service is most often required is on indoor climbing walls. If you have invested in a climbing wall for your school, sports centre or youth club, you will want to use it. Gaining qualifications (CWA / SPA) is time consuming and expensive, and probably only likely to be a pathway for the dedicated climber. Adventure Training North East can provide a training and assessment course for your staff who will gain a Site Specific Sign-off to deliver bouldering and bottom roping on a 1:6 Ratio at your Wall. As part of this service you will receive a Standard Operating Procedure / Risk Assessment for your Climbing Wall. This is a 12 month sign-off, which will require an annual re-assessment

“When our sixth form college installed a new climbing wall Jon trained our staff, set our routes and guided us through the necessary processes for a very safe but exciting experience for our students. Jon has a deep understanding of both climbing and its specific role in education and his delivery was exceptional in terms of engaging the staff, some of whom were complete beginners. We will definitely be using him again in the future and I would recommend him without hesitation.”
