OUR JOBS ARE BETTER THAN MOST PEOPLE’S VACATIONS!

Adventura is a truly unique place to work.

In the Pacific northwest, Adventura is routinely identified as the highest quality adventure park and the industry leader in Corporate Teambuilding. As a result, we see thousands of customers every year ranging from couples, friends and families, to corporate events of all shapes and sizes. 

We ask a lot of our staff. Our staff are ambassadors of the Adventura brand and that role is a big deal. While customers look to our sales representatives, course technicians and facilitators for guidance and support, ambassadorship extends well beyond the work day. Once people know where you work and what you do, they have a lot of questions. This phenomenon connects with our passion and draws people in to the experience.

We train constantly. We expect all staff to make a strong commitment to developing skills and absorbing knowledge about customer care, risk management, technical skills, and the Adventura Philosophy.

Practitioner Certification

Certification is the indication that a particular individual has met a certain set of criteria at a given time. ACCT has developed certification standards in order to define certification in the challenge course industry, to the benefit of both the individual holding the certification and the employer looking to assess an applicant’s skills. Certification is the testing and skills verification piece that follows a training.

The Practitioner Certification standards were first published in an addendum to the ACCT standards in June 2007. The standards outline the requirements for Level I, Level II and Challenge Course Manager certification, with tracks of Full Certification, High Course only, Spotted Elements only, and Site/System Specific Certification. They also outline the requirements for practitioner competencies related to the operations standards in every type of certification.

Part of the requirement is a portfolio outlining all of the different kinds of experience that a practitioner has acquired over the years. ACCT has developed a sample portfolio as an excel spreadsheet, if you choose to use it. The spreadsheet has a number of pages, each relating to a different kind of experience and/or education. To download the portfolio, click here.

Certification is intended to be transferable to different courses, with the exception of the Site Specific certification. An individuals’ certificate will also outline any specialty elements on which they have been trained, such as a zip line or climbing tower. Certification does not replace good hiring practices, but complements them.

The certification itself is issued by a challenge course vendor, not ACCT. Certifications from ACCT Professional Vendor Members will indicate that they have been accredited to issue certifications or not.
