Training and Certification Available

The Adventure Network hosts our “open training” twice a year for individuals and small groups.  Participants can choose to complete ACCT based certification (Level I or II) or attend only the days needed for your program and client needs.



Any practitioners looking to complete Level II certification (or challenge-in for Level I) must submit a portfolio of training and facilitation experience at least 1 week prior to testing.  A link to a sample portfolio from the ACCT is available here.  Although this specific format is not required, the information contained must match your portfolio.  Call our office with questions.

The Adventure Network offers professional training and certification courses for challenge course facilitators.  School teachers and camp staffs alike need training for proper utilization of a challenge course and/or teambuilding program.  We offer on-site training programs that allow your staff practice on their own courses with the equipment they use on a day-to-day basis.  Typical training duration and group size is below.

For supervisors or those wishing to learn a bit more, we offer certification courses accredited by the ACCT (Association for Challenge Course Technology).  These courses range from a couple days to a full week (depending on experience level).  Details on requirements and standards for certification can be found here.
