WOMEN OF ACCT'S ICE STUDY GROUP (In-House & Professional) Wednesday 8 November 2023 - Thursday 1 February 2024

DESCRIPTION: Intended for women who plan to take an upcoming ACCT Inspector Certification Exam, or those who are contemplating it, the WoA ICE Study Group is comprised of six (6) live Zoom sessions held over the course of 13 weeks.

Sessions will be held at 5:30p Mountain and will last 90 minutes. Each session will have discussion topics that are based on ACCT-identified exam categories as well as sample tests. Additionally, one or two real photo-based scenarios will be presented during each session in order to get practice working through an inspection/evaluation process. Current certified inspectors and other industry professionals will be in attendance to help guide the discussion and answer questions. An online forum will also be provided for the group to share resources, ask questions, have online discussions, and help each other succeed outside of the scheduled study sessions. Space is limited so please express interest via the online form sooner rather than later.

From Petzl:
Request for inspection of ASTRO and CANYON GUIDE harnesses following the detection of a defect on the gated opening attachment point of an ASTRO harness. Due to the risk of unintentional opening of this attachment point, which could result in a life-threatening situation, we ask you to stop any use of these harnesses and to carry out immediately the following inspection.
