Straight Line Operator Level 1 & Level 2


Have you ever wanted to work in the outdoors teaching a sport as awesome as wakeboarding? Become a British Water Ski and Wakeboard operator with us!

Who is this course designed for?

The Straight-Line Cable Operator qualification is designed for anyone looking to learn and develop their skills as a cable operator. The majority of the learning occurs during the SLO1. During this time candidates will complete a mixture of theoretical and practical based learning & assessment. The SLO1 is an all-day assessment based upon your ability to understand the key safety elements of the cable, including a basic operating assessment.

Once the candidate has passed this assessment, they will be able to operate a straight-line cable whilst under direct supervision. This is to allow the candidate to gain the necessary skills to prepare them for operating a straight-line cable on their own. The candidate will complete the Supervised Training Guide (STG) whilst they are practicing for their Straight-Line Cable Operating Level 2 Assessment (SLO2).

The SLO2 is a more advanced assessment of the candidate’s knowledge and ability with operating a straight-line cable. The candidate will complete a written and practical test; upon passing the test and once the relevant fees are paid the candidate will be qualified to operate a straight-line cable unsupervised.
