Single Pitch Instructor (SPI) Providers are a vital component of the AMGA. Based throughout the country, SPI Providers teach AMGA SPI Courses and facilitate Assessments. If you are interested in becoming an SPI Provider, please read this page in full.
As representatives of the AMGA and providers of the SPI curriculum – we look for dedicated educators with comprehensive teaching or mentoring experience that are committed to helping students succeed. In addition to climbing and technical expertise, being able to articulate written and verbal feedback is an essential skill for those interested in becoming providers.
The process of becoming an SPI Provider is comprehensive. Minimum certification or training required to apply is AMGA Certified Rock Instructor, AMGA Assistant Rock Guide, or AMGA Certified Rock Guide. The process to become a full provider takes time, travel and some financial commitment. For example, once accepted into the process, there are shadowing, co-teaching, and training requirements that may involve unpaid travel and time. This process ensures that AMGA SPI Providers are well versed in the curriculum, have gone through a strong mentorship period, and are ready to deliver high quality programs.
We are not currently accepting new provider applications. Over the next few months we will be reviewing and updating our communications surrounding the process of becoming an SPI Provider, with the goal of making this information more transparent, comprehensive, and accessible for applicants. We appreciate your patience during this time as we take stock of the current process and work to better our information and communications surrounding this.
Stay tuned here and in AMGA Member Newsletters as we hope to have new information released by June 15th, 2019.
Thank you for your continued support and patience while we update this information.
