The belay certification process has been structured to ensure that you are confident in the fundamental skills of belay and includes two steps: the Belay Workshop where you will be taught and have the opportunity to refine your skills followed by an assessment called the Belay Certification where we determine that you posses the minimum competencies to be certified. A lot of new concepts and skills are introduced at the clinic and we HIGHLY encourage you attend as many clinics as are needed for you to feel confident belaying - there are no fees for attending additional clinics.
Registration: Required and can be done at the Outdoor Programs Outing Center located in the Student Recreation Center.
The Belay Workshop will cover:
- Orientation to our facility and some of the common hazards to avoid
- Introduction to the proper use and care of climbing equipment: shoes, harnesses, helmets, ropes, carabiners, and belay devices
- Knots used to tie into climbing rope
