External providers of adventurous activities can undertake the necessary training to be able to hire the Skyline as a venue. This will allow the company to deliver their own courses using the Skyline Indoor Via Ferrata facility.
The training, which is delivered by The Lakeland Climbing Centre to individuals from external companies, is site-specific and complies with standard EN15567 covering operation and rescue procedures on high ropes courses. For further information on this standard please visit here.
The training is split into 2 days and is completed by a participant employed by a company that provides adventurous activities. These companies must hold their own insurance for high ropes. Day 1 covers the operational and rescue training and Day 2, which is a shorter day, is a practical test and written exam. Before a participant can be ‘signed off’ by Lakeland Climbing Centre they must complete the following:
> Participant must have completed a Kendal Leader Led VF Adventure prior to training. (£22: Please book onto your session at www.kendalwall.co.uk or ring reception on 01539 721766.)
> A training course, with a practical test and a written exam. This spans over 2 days (£100) – anyone who requires extra practice between training and assessment can organise an alternative assessment day.
> Shadowing a VF Leader Led Adventure (no costs). This is to broaden knowledge in regards to site specific aspects of the course whilst delivering.
After successful completion the provider can hire the venue for the following prices and duration:
THE LAUNCH Initial training room: £40 (6 max) Age 10+
