Single Pitch Supervisor Award
The Single Pitch Supervisor Scheme (SPS) provides training and assessment for those who supervise single pitch rock climbing. It is suitable for individuals working in a professional, semi-professional or voluntary capacity.
The scheme has been designed for those who are in a position of responsibility. It is primarily concerned with good practice leading to the safe enjoyment of the activity.
The scheme does not cover:
The skills needed to approach and retreat from mountain crags
Multi-pitch rock climbing and it’s supervision
Access to any location where escape is not easily possible from the top and the bottom of a climb.

The Scheme comprises of:
Registration and issue of a logbook
A two day training course
Further experience gained during a consolidation period
A two day assessment course
Continuing experience entered in a logbook
Entry level course
