The following Certification Opportunity is being provided by the UNI ROPES Challenge Course and is not officially sponsored by the Utah Recreation Therapy Association.
There are a few spots remaining in UNI ROPES’ upcoming Challenge Course Facilitator Training Week. Attendees will have the opportunity to earn a transferable certification as a Level 1 Challenge Course Facilitator. This training is being provided by ABEE, a professional vendor member (PVM) of the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT). This is a unique opportunity because your ropes course may require an official certification from an ACCT PVM. Currently, none exist in Utah and can be costly to fly in.
A Level 1 Certification is designed for people who are new to the industry and are seeking the training needed to facilitate a challenge course program. This certification also enables the client to grow as they gain more experience. This certification will last for 1 year. You may recert with UNI ROPES each year afterwards.
Requirements to participate and complete a Level 1 Certification:
- Must be at least 18 years or older.
- Be able to complete a minimum 40-hour training for a Level 1 Full certification track OR 20-hours minimum for low or high only.
- Pass a written test with a score of at least 80%.
- Pass a skills test.
When: May 13-17th, 2019, 9am-5pm each day.
