SPA Refresher

Perhaps you are looking to do your SPA assessment in the near future but feel that you could still do with some more input on a particular aspect of the syllabus. Maybe you just lack confidence and would value some feedback on your current abilities. Or maybe you already hold the SPA but have not used it for a while and would like a refresher again to bring you up to speed so you have the confidence to use the award again.

On the SPA refresher course the areas that people most commonly ask for further training on include party management skills, running a group abseil, and personal lead climbing skills. We can however cover any aspect of the syllabus that you wish to look at.

Ian has worked on SPA Training and Assessment courses for a number of different providers over a number of years and is therefore perfectly placed to give you up to date training and realistic feedback on your current ability.


 For the SPA refresher course you should already be leading severe and be looking towards doing your SPA assessment in the near future. Alternatively you may already hold your SPA and not have used it for a while and wish to bring your skills back up to speed so you can use the award again in the future.
