Award Description

This qualification trains and assesses candidates in the skills required to supervise climbers on purpose built artificial climbing walls and boulders. The scheme does not include the skills and techniques required to teach lead climbing.

About

If you would like to teach climbing on indoor climbing walls or mobile climbing towers then this is the course for you. In this two day course you can get to grips with all the technical skills and safety requirements required to safely supervise people who wish to climb indoors.

This course does not cover lead climbing, for that you will need the Climbing Wall Development Instructor scheme which is a higher qualification. If you are interested in abseiling training you can also do the Climbing Wall Instructor Abseil Module which is an add on module to this course.
