Training Description

American Mountain Guide Association Climbing Wall Instructor course and exam

The Climbing Wall Instructor Program, for professional and recreational indoor climbers, will improve your skills. Whether you work in the indoor realm or are a recreational climber, the content of this course will benefit you in many ways. The course helps to improve your skills of managing groups, teaching skills for clear delivery of the content, and technical skills to manage your risk.

The Climbing Wall Instructor Program (CWI) was introduced in 2007 to certify professionals who teach in an indoor or artificial wall environment. It aims to increase the level of professionalism in indoor climbing and to improve the level of climbing wall instruction, to develop a more consistent standard of care for climbing instructors in the US, to evaluate the skills of climbing instructors in the US, and to provide guidance for further professional development. There are two certification levels:

  • AMGA CWI Top Rope
  • AMGA CWI Lead

This course addresses the basic technical skills necessary to manage an instructional program at a climbing facility. The course length is a minimum of 20 hours of instruction, skills demonstration, and evaluation, typically run over 2.5 days. Certification and AMGA membership lasts for three years. After three years current CWI’s can re-take a one-day reassessment to regain the CWI certification.
