This course training & certification incorporates many of the skills that are taught and practiced on the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) Single Pitch Instructor course. However, this course is not an AMGA SPI course.  This course will be intensive with each day typically lasting nine hours spent climbing or working on skills.

Learning Objectives

Climbing instructors or guides that work primarily for wilderness ministries, other outdoor education programs, or other wilderness adventure programs typically work with multiple participants with high student-teacher ratios, and focus on educating and teaching climbing skills.  The Rock Instructor I course prepares participants to lead in these contexts and to proficiently set up and manage top rope sites for multiple participants.

Skills covered in the Rock Instructor I include (but are not limited to) the following:
