Order the ANSI/ACCT Challenge Course and Canopy/Zip Line Tours Standards


The ACCT has been developing standards for the challenge course industry since 1994. Between 1994 and 2012, the ACCT published eight editions of the ACCT Standards.  The ANSI/ACCT 03-2016 Challenge Course and Canopy/Zip Line Tour Standard received final approval January 11, 2016 from the ANSI Board of Standards Review. It is now an approved American National Standard (ANS), thus discontinuing the publication nomenclature of 1st through 8th edition.




Your copy of the standard includes:

·         Definitions of Terminology

·         Design, Performance, and Inspection Standards

·         Operation Standards

·         Training Standards

·         Practitioner Certification Standards

·         Appendices with information including, but not limited to:

o   Discussion of Conventional Challenge Course Design

o   Zip Line Brake Systems

o   Certification of People with Disabilities

o   Essential Functions of a Challenge Course Facilitator
