Climbing Wall Instructor

CLIMBING WALL INSTRUCTOR TRAINING

The Climbing Wall Instructor qualification trains and assesses candidates in the skills required to supervise climbers on purpose built artificial climbing walls and boulders. It is ideal for people who work in climbing walls or at venues with permanent or mobile climbing towers.

It is primarily concerned with ensuring good practice, leading to the safe enjoyment of climbing activities, and to an understanding of the sport. It covers the supervision and management of activities  such as bouldering, the teaching of basic movement skills and roped climbing, excluding the teaching of leading.

In addition to good personal climbing skills, a climbing wall instructor will demonstrate safe group management, be an effective supervisor and encourage others to enjoy their climbing safely. 

This course is suitable for rock climbing enthusiasts wishing to introduce others to the sport of rock climbing.
