Level 2 Certification Training - Facilitator's Master Class

March 14 - 18, 2022

La Crosse, WI


This level 2 training offers advanced technical skills for facilitating low, high, and specialty challenge course elements. This course will also take a deep dive into the soft skills of facilitation; focusing on key social and emotional practices that engage and motivate participants. Through the practice of identifying and meeting motivational needs, participants begin to operate at the learning edge and in turn maximize the outcomes of both individual and group experiences on the challenge course.

The training will include aspects of advanced challenge course facilitation, programming, operations, risk management, and rescue procedures. While this course is not intended to prepare you to train others, it will prepare you to observe and mentor other facilitators. This training will include presentation, discussion, experiential components, and participation on the challenge course.
