PPE User Checks for the Adventure Activities Sector RoSPA Approved

Duration - 1 Day :: Course Cost - £170 plus VAT

Anyone working as an independent or outdoor education centre instructor, stores staff or rescue team member must be able to carry out user checks of both their own Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and that used by group members for whom they are responsible.

This RoSPA approved course has been designed for those who use PPE for climbing, mountaineering, caving or water-based adventure activities.  The course provides underpinning knowledge of legislation and equipment performance as well as the skills necessary to carry out suitable user checks prior to, during and after use.

Topics are covered using a combination of hands-on user check product training and classroom presentations.  At the end of the course, following successful completion of a short assessment, candidates will be able to undertake user checks of their own and others adventure activities PPE and to identify damage and/or defects that would necessitate an item being taken out of service and passed to a ‘competent’ person for thorough examination.

Following assessment, successful candidates will receive a Lyon Equipment certificate and an ID card record of training, valid for three years.

Please note that completion of this course does not lead to a 'competent person' certificate. For this please see our course LT09AA: PPE Inspection Competent Person for the Adventure Activities sector.
