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.
