About

This is a combined training and assessment course for people who want to actively support a qualified instructor. Qualified Indoor Climbing Assistants can assist with core tasks within a session, directly supervised by an instructor.

From the handbook:

"The Indoor Climbing Assistant qualification is for those with competence in the basic skills of climbing who wish to assist qualified climbing instructors in the management of their sessions.  Indoor Climbing Assistants are assessed as being competent in their role supporting qualified instructors and coaches but are not qualified to manage groups independently.

Indoor Climbing Assistants can have an inspirational effect on individuals, groups and communities.  they work with participants and a range of others such as instructors, other climbing assistants, colleagues,volunteers, parents, teachers, youth workers and health professionals to ensure the climbing experience is the very best it can be."

​My course will offer a range  information, practical tips, skills and advice which will prepare you for being a qualified assistant. A successful candidate will be able to:

  • Assist with the fitting of basic climbing equipment such as harness,helmets and rock shoes.

  • Assist a qualified instructor with the supervision of core climbing techniques.

  • Assist a qualified instructor at indoor and outdoor bouldering venues and climbing walls.

We aim to make all of our courses enjoyable and informative.  We also have a policy of making reasonable adjustments to ensure that our courses are as accessible as possible.
