Association for Challenge Course Technology Challenge Course Manager Certification, 2022
In 2022 members of our management team and staff, Callie Murphy (Assistant General Manager), Linnea Van Manen (Asheville Treetops Adventure Park Manager), and Jordan Hisamoto (Lead Guide) attended training to receive their Challenge Course Manager (CCM) full certifications. This certification is the highest level a practitioner in the field can receive. The standards for the CCM were developed by the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT), and the training was delivered by Challenge Towers, a Professional Vendor Member under ACCT. To receive the certification, practitioners must submit portfolios that outline a base requirement level of experience, attend comprehensive training, and pass a written and practical exam.
Callie, Linnea, and Jordan worked hard to achieve this certification and aced their exams with flying colors, and we are very proud of them! Through this training, they were able to develop and expand their skills and knowledge regarding all facets of managing a challenge course (like our Treetops Adventure Park) and bring that knowledge back to the Adventure Center of Asheville to continue our growth as a company.
