Let’s Learn Singapore National Climbing Standards (SNCS) and Abseiling (SNAS )Level 1 Certification

 

This is a combination package of the popular (SNCS1) course  and the (SNAS1) Abseiling course to get you ready for all of your climbing experiences.

Both of these courses are an introduction to the sport of climbing and abseiling in Singapore by learning equipment basics, top-rope skills, 5 step belay method, abseiling with figure 8 descender, and safety lock off procedures while Abseiling.

Once you have completed the SNCS level 1 Certification course, you can then complete the verification process at your favorite climbing gym. Your SNAS Level 1 certification will be needed if you decide to continue complete the SNCS Level 3 multipitch course.  Also learning abseiling here in Singapore will prepare you for the great sport of Canyoning, which is widely popular in New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Taiwan and the US.  Will be teaching you on the same gear used while Canyoning, without needing a westuit!

There will be two instructors providing support for this training combination. Spaces limited to a maximum of 6 people per class so sign up today!
