Posted on February 19th, 2017 by admin

A very successful 16 hour first aid course was run last weekend. There was one day at St. John HQ and one day at MYC for a practical session in an outdoor setting.

16 leaders completed the course and Norman includes a thank you to all the Leaders for giving up their time to attend the course. He wanted to give a special thank you to William Hearnden and Alex Mercer who were our young casualties for the afternoons practical scenarios.

Climbing Wall Award training – part of our new training budget

Posted on May 17th, 2016 by admin

cwa1[1]Dear all

At a recent meeting of the Scout Association Isle of Man Executive Committee the sum of £15,000.00 has been ear marked spread over 5 years for leader training in adventurous activities

This year and next we intend to concentrate on the Climbing Wall Award and also kayaking. The CWA is a NGB qualification and training and assessment will take place in the UK and the requirements are briefly as follows:

Experience

  • You need to be a climber and have a interest in delivering the activity to our groups at Hot Rocks (subject to Executive approval we hope to construct a 3 route wall at Mullin ny Carty one route being higher than Hot rocks)
  • You must have climbed on at least 3 different walls including a major wall (if you lack the experience please don’t worry we will train you locally in preparation for the formal training with the formal training next year).

Registration

  • You must register with Mountain Training Association and fill in a log

Training

  • There is two full days of training and one evening completed on one visit

Consolidation

  • Three to six months of further training to develop new ideas and skills

Assesment

  • This is for a full day and evening
  • Have recorded a minimum of 30 visits to at least 3 different walls
  • Have led a minimum of 40 climbs

As you can see this is a demanding course and much practice will be required and we are looking for 4 leaders to undertake this course. Upon completion with a pass the leader will have a additional role, County Assessor and be able to recommend permits to suitably trained leaders.

Please express your interest with Steve Hearnden – AIC Activities.

Regards,
Guy
