The Challenge Course Facilitator Level I (site specific) training is designed for anyone who wants to know more about facilitation. This training is in accordance with the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) standards and covers frontloading, debriefing, sequencing of activities, and selected theories. The technical skills covered in this training include spotting, belaying, rescues, and gear inspections. At the end of this training, you will have a wide repertoire of activities that you can either lead on or off the challenge course. The last day of the course includes testing. Attendance is required on all days. Participants who successfully complete the training and testing will be offered a certificate of completion.
This training is not a guarantee for employment with the UREC Challenge Program. If hired after successful completion of training and interviewing, our facilitators benefit from a great deal of professional development and personal growth. Facilitators can expect to hone their skills in group management and leadership, effective communication, guiding meaningful discussions, rapport-building, and developing confidence in themselves and others.
