Abseil Supervisor Award - Level 1 & 2
The Abseil Supervisor Scheme (AS) provides training and assessment for those who are in a position of responsibility while supervising abseiling. It is suitable for individuals working in a professional, semi-professional or voluntary capacity.
The scheme is primarily concerned with good practice, leading to the safe enjoyment of the activity. Level 1 covers abseil sites up to 60m in height and Level 2 covers abseil sites of up to 150m in height.
The scheme does not cover:
The skills needed to approach and retreat from mountain crags
Sites where escape is not easily possible from the top and bottom of the abseil site
Multiple abseils, or abseils that involve intermediate stances
Completion of a training course alone, without taking and assessment course, is not a qualification in itself, although it may be of considerable benefit to the trainee.
The Scheme comprises of:
Registration and issue of a logbook
Training course/s comprising of:
Level 1: three days, addressing short abseils
Level 2: one additional day, addressing the special requirements of long abseils
Further experience gained during a consolidation period
A one day assessment course
Continuing experience entered in a logbook
Entry level course for those who supervise abseiling only
A good grounding for continuation onto the rock climbing levels
