If you operate a ropes course best practice is to have a regime of inspections in place to ensure the structure remains in a safe and operable condition, in conjunction with regular in-house inspections undertaken by your own staff. An annual external inspection by a Type C inspector is required.
InsideOut has ERCA qualified ropes course inspectors with many years expertise. We hold relevant certification in wire rope inspection, pole inspection, PPE inspection and general ropes course inspection. We test ground anchors, belay anchors and stay wires to ensure their compliance with the standard.

Insideout recently constructed a team challenge course for Thames Young Mariners. The course encourages young people to work as part of a team and helps them to develop important life skills. The course has many challenges that help participants learn from their experiences and gradually improve their performance. This learning cycle - do-review-apply - is a form of action research where they are both the Guinea pig and the researcher responsible for their own learning.
