AMGA Climbing Wall Instructor Training March 18-20 in Boulder, CO

by Mia on March 7, 2011

I was having dinner with one of my amazing, incredible, talented climber girlfriends tonight, and she mentioned that her upcoming AMGA certification Climbing Wall Instructor Training course may be cancelled because of low enrollment. The course needs two more enrollees in order to run.

Have you thought about starting AMGA training? Now’s the time!

The Climbing Wall Instructor Certification is described here on the AMGA website. The full information about the upcoming course is available from the training provider, Colorado Mountain School. Students will learn:

  • Client orientation and instruction
  • Teaching general climbing skills and movement
  • Teaching top-roping and lead belaying techniques
  • Equipment and facility use
  • Rescue and emergency procedures

And registration is $350.  To register, don’t email:  Call CMS directly at 1-800-836-4008 and ask for EJ.  If you or someone you know has been thinking about taking the course, do it!  You’ll be in excellent company, if so!  :)

I would love to get certified! Unfortunately, I am not in CO but in UT. Also, want to learn to set routes, but that’s a whole other conversation…

Hello my Wall climbing Instructor cerfication expires in about a year. I live and work here in Germany.
I’m going on vacation to San Diego this December. Do you offer a re – certification in San Diego.

I know this post is from a while ago, but I just stumbled across it. I just took my AMGA SPI course this past fall, and I’m planning to take my exam in the spring. Since I just recently became an AMGA member, I went to their annual meeting to meet the other meetings. I was not surprised, but still amazed to see how very few of the members were women! I was the only lady on any of the technically oriented pro-dev clinics. It was an interesting experience.
