Climbing Wall Solutions

Over the last 10 years we have trained and assessed staff at over 50 school walls, large and small commercial climbing walls, bouldering only walls, climbing towers and council run climbing walls. These include Leeds Wall, The Lab, The Depot, The Barn, Kirklees and Bradford Councils, Leeds Metropolitan University, (testimonials can be found here). We have been brought in after serious accidents have occurred to advise schools and health and safety teams on best practise and delivered expert witness reports in court cases involving staff who are site specifically trained. This is why we believe we are the number one climbing wall trainers in the country.

Climbing wall instructor training and assessment

Our HSE recognised award allows your staff to run climbing sessions at your facility within days of being trained. Following an initial meeting a quality assured action plan can be quickly devised by us to help your facility to flourish as safely and quickly as possible. The process will follow the Mountain Training guidelines set up for site specific validation. Our rigorous training and assessment process will ensure that only those who meet the highest standards will receive the “statement of competence” certificate on passing the course, an essential requirement of the HSE.
Our training package would include as a minimum:

  • Full 12 hour (two day or 4/5 evening/after school sessions) training then assessment.
  • Quality assured scheme and syllabus tailor made to meet your specific requirements. including equipment checks, simple rescues and group leadership.
  • Statement of Competence certification. 

In conjunction we will provide you with a set of operational procedures and risk assessment documentation.
