  • The climb must be completed in good and safe style and the assessor may at their discretion ask for certain safety or rescue skills to be demonstrated.
  • This practical examination must form part of the overall assessment and may not be by-passed.

Courses (and associated assessment) aimed at the abseiling, hiking and rock climbing supervisor responsible for group activities.

Courses are designed to flow in a complimentary system toward each level. Some systems (R.I.A / K.I.A) require additional modules as their scope of operation overlaps with those programs. For example a Rock or Kloofing Instructor requires Walking Group Leader as a supplement. Likewise an M.I.A can have Kloofing exclusion.
