Recreational Rappel Operator (RECRO)

The four day course is based on international best practice, including the New Zealand Mountain Safety Council’s abseil instruction resources and covers how to lead group rappeling (abseiling) activities in a recreational context. It includes knots, environmental care, rope physics, technical equipment, anchoring, rappeling, contingency/releasable anchor systems, belaying, coaching new rappellers, emergency drills, ascending, risk management and site management.

This course is aimed at recreational users only and not suitable for public safety or industrial rope access. For those who already hold TRRTL, we offer a two day upgrade course. Students may have the opportunity to go on and complete certification as a Recreational Rappel Instructor (RRI) with Rescue 3 International.
