What is the Rock Climbing Instructor?
Our three-day course covers many skills designed to turn climbers into instructors who are able to motivate & coach rock climbing to a wide range of groups. Over the three days, we focus on group sessions, rigging, abseiling and coaching.
As well as a focus on group instructing skills we also cover the important aspects of personal climbing skills.
Why do your Rock Climbing Instructor training course with us?
We have been a provider of Rock Climbing Instructor (formally known as the Single Pitch Award) courses for many years and we draw on a wealth of experience. We bring to the course not only a vast level of training and coaching experience but we also run many actual sessions for real groups and so remain really current with hands-on delivery. Running sessions for scouts, schools, young families, beginner climbers, teaching leading and rigging to university students, adult groups, etc. This allows us to stay current and continually assess our course delivery.
As a result of this, we deliver courses that are practical, simple and give you effective skills to develop your rock climbing sessions.
We have spent a lot of time analysing best practice and strive to for excellence throughout our courses.
We aim to deliver courses in a clear and thought-through style, that is progressive and structured and yet flexible enough to allow discussion and new ideas. We understand that candidates have different learning styles and we aim to deliver our courses to reflect this.
We run the Rock Climbing Instructor courses as non-residential. That way we can meet candidates at the crag and spend more time at the venue. Please see this link for suggestions of accommodation.
We do have a friendly dog on our courses called “fly”, if you do not like dog’s please let us know and we won’t bring him along.
