Course Description:

This workshop gives the skilled challenge course practitioner the opportunity to review and add to their foundation of technical skills. Emphasis is on practicing and improving technical skills while developing what we call a quiet competence as an adventure practitioner.

At the beginning of the first day, specific participant needs will be assessed and then factored into the daily agenda. The content of this workshop builds upon the content from Beyond Basics Level 2 Workshop and also provides a framework for you to review and prepare for the Level 2 Challenge Course Certification exam.
