"Lye is without a doubt a dedicated practitioner of adventure education. In my 35 years of training individuals from around the world, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more dedicated workshop participant. He is thorough, inquisitive, inspiring and professional in everything he does. His time at High 5 was a wonderful experience not just for me but for all of our staff. He has a wonderfully personable manner and added value to everything he did with us."
Jim Grout - Director
"The feedback that we get from our customers was filled with glowing praises for Yen Kai as they found his training to be clear, precise and fun. What is more important to us was his ability to emphasize the safety considerations to the customers and his dedication to the training given. He makes it a point to get acquainted to the products used by us before he even embarks on the training."
"His diverse and in-depth experience with challenge course both in Singapore and internationally has enabled students in the Diploma of Outdoor & Adventure Learning to have a richer appreciation of design, operations and philosophy that undergirds programs that use such facilities. Lye's purpose to build challenge course in Singapore has also been an excellent teaching tool for students in our programs as it highlights how a designer is able to develop a facility that serves the needs of diverse programs."
Association of Challenge Course Technology (ACCT)
Challenge Courses has been springing up in various parts of Singapore over the past 20 years. Many organisations, institutions and schools have or are planning to integrate Challenge Course into their facilities and curriculum. As the number of courses increases, the demand for a recognized standard for building, operation and training has become critically important.
Association of Challenge Course Technology (ACCT, USA), which is incorporated in 1993, is a widely accepted standard for the building, operation as well as training and certification of challenge courses. It continues to be the leading standard in the Challenge Course Industry.
Pivotal Learning is a Professional Vendor Member (PVM) in training and certification for the Practitioner Certification Standard!
Our intention for the accreditation is to provide a well-recognised curriculum to support the development of our Challenge Course Practitioners, to bench marking our competencies to the best practices around the world.
Our workshop focuses on common practices as well as building a well-rounded practitioner in 3 core competencies: Core, Technical and Facilitation. We employ Competency Based Learning, Scenario Based Learning, Problem Based Learning and Facilitative Teaching to ensure our practitioners go beyond RIGHT/WRONG thinking. Our goal is to provide our practitioners with a pair of critical eyes and a thinking hat to understand and explore different techniques and methodologies.
At this point, Pivotal Learning offers the following workshops that are designed and structured to meet the ACCT's Practitioner Certification Standards:
