I’m happy to share that the next Sport Climbing Instructors’ COP will tentatively happen in Jan 2018. For the third edition, I am happy to have the following instructors stepping forward to help put this COP together:
Fish, Joe, Ai Chin, Delson, Zedong and Mr. Hee. We had a delightful meet up recently to kickstart the planning and here are the tentative details,
Date : 20 Jan 2018 (Sat)
Time : Evening (6.30pm – 9.30pm)
Venue : TBC
Theme : “The Dilemma of Incidents”
In light of the few accidents that the team has come to hear about in the climbing community, we would like to focus the COP around the theme of safety and risk management. This COP will address topics like risk management, processes, crisis management etc. to better equip instructors with information to manage incidences in your climbing programmes. This is not going to be one of those run-of-the-mill first aid courses but instead we would like to look at the before and after of an incident so that we can better prepare instructors for it.
The blank sheet of paper for COP #3 now has some stuff scribbled on it but it is not inked down yet. If you have any ideas or you think you would like to contribute something for this COP, please feel free to contact us so that we do not miss out on what you can bring to the table. In the meantime, mark the date in your calendars and I will update as more details firm up.
