The course is a good foundation for anyone who is involved with inclusive climbing (or any inclusive [adventure] sport). It will help you consider and adapt the support needed to any individual with any impairment and allow them to enjoy the sport, safely, confidently and inclusively…

“Very engaging, thought provoking and can be used as a tool in instructing and coaching for all participants irrespective of whether they have impairments or not.”

You’ll leave feeling confident in your ability to apply the Decision-Making Framework in your coaching and have a kindled interest in inclusive adventure for all.”
