Abseiling Guide (AG) Training


AG Training

*Formerly known as BAI pre August 2021*

This is usually run as a one or two day course at Freycinet, other options can be negotiated. Participants learn the essential skills to safely rig abseils using natural protection (trees, rocks, etc). Participants are instructed on group management skills and techniques to maximise safety and efficiency when running an abseiling activity. Basic rescues are covered.

As the AG qualification does not certify the use of artificial protection (nuts, camming devices, hexs etc), this is not covered in the course.
