The AMGA Climbing Instructor Program consists of two certification streams: Single Pitch Instructor and Climbing Wall Instructor. The Climbing Instructor Program is intended for individuals who facilitate climbing experiences, instruct climbing skills, and/or monitor climbing activities.
SPI and CWI courses are offered year-round all over the United States. If there is a crag or climbing gym nearby, there is a very good chance that there is also an AMGA SPI or CWI Provider in the vicinity. SPI and CWI Providers have been vetted, trained, and licensed by the AMGA to offer these courses and certifications. All Providers hold AMGA certification and most hold multiple certifications. Along with being skilled technicians, they are also among the best educators in the business. To find a Provider in your area click here.
