Our association includes european trainers, builders and inspectors of ropes courses as well as organisations working with temporary or stationary ropes courses. The board and teams represent the interests of all ERCA members and aim at developing ropes courses further. At least once a year a general meeting takes place offering the opportunity to set standards, to give the teams assignments, to define new teams and organize workshops and conferences dealing with our topics.
ERCA provides a system for the training and certification of ropes course instructors and rescuers, as well as ropes course inspectors. Additionally, the association establishes standards for ropes course construction, inspection, operation, and training – that go beyond the general European norm.
