European Ropes Course Association (ERCA)
Our Association includes instructors, rescuers, trainers, builders and inspectors of ropes courses as well as organisations operating temporary ropes courses.
We update and optimise existing ERCA standards relating to construction, inspection, training and operation of ropes courses. We consider ERCA to be a basis for the exchange of knowledge, safety research and quality improvement.
Non-professionals like recreational climbers, visitors to forest adventure parks or group leaders searching for ropes course facilities will find interesting spots at our ropes course location map.
Teachers, parents or managers of educational programmes may be interested in our FAQ section with helpful answers regarding quality aspects, safety, supervision and more relevant topics for the high ropes course industry.
Our classifieds section is a useful source of information for those seeking employment or for more miscellaneous matters like training courses, equipment for sale or unusual events.
