Non-Professional Canyoning Training Courses through KRA and ICOPro
Throughout the year, we offer different opportunities for you to learn skills to be autonomous in moderate risk canyons through ICOPro’s Canyoneer Levels 1-2-3 (CA-1-2-3). These courses are 11 days in duration (3 days of e-learning and 8 days training course onsite).
The objective of the CA-1-2-3 is to give you the skills needed to organize non-professional canyoning excursions. In your CA-1-2-3 course, you will learn and implement technical rigging, knot passing techniques, rope ascending skills, rope cutting, rescue techniques and management, horizontal and vertical rigging and techniques, hydrology, team management, just to name a few!
