Climbing Wall Award training – part of our new training budget

Posted on May 17th, 2016 by admin

cwa1[1]Dear all

At a recent meeting of the Scout Association Isle of Man Executive Committee the sum of £15,000.00 has been ear marked spread over 5 years for leader training in adventurous activities

This year and next we intend to concentrate on the Climbing Wall Award and also kayaking. The CWA is a NGB qualification and training and assessment will take place in the UK and the requirements are briefly as follows:

Experience

  • You need to be a climber and have a interest in delivering the activity to our groups at Hot Rocks (subject to Executive approval we hope to construct a 3 route wall at Mullin ny Carty one route being higher than Hot rocks)
  • You must have climbed on at least 3 different walls including a major wall (if you lack the experience please don’t worry we will train you locally in preparation for the formal training with the formal training next year).

Registration

  • You must register with Mountain Training Association and fill in a log

Training

  • There is two full days of training and one evening completed on one visit

Consolidation

  • Three to six months of further training to develop new ideas and skills

Assesment

  • This is for a full day and evening
  • Have recorded a minimum of 30 visits to at least 3 different walls
  • Have led a minimum of 40 climbs

As you can see this is a demanding course and much practice will be required and we are looking for 4 leaders to undertake this course. Upon completion with a pass the leader will have a additional role, County Assessor and be able to recommend permits to suitably trained leaders.

Please express your interest with Steve Hearnden – AIC Activities.

Regards,
Guy

Who would be interested in gaining the FULL First Aid certificate?

Posted on April 1st, 2016 by admin

This training will take place over a two day period, date to be decided. This is a more advanced course than the First Response course and would be of particular interest to anyone completing or considering taking adventurous activities classed as Terrain Two where requirements state someone holding this qualification must be present. However it is open to any leader who would like to further their knowledge in first aid.

If you require further information or wish to register your interest email silverscouter@gmail.com.
