$330 - $430
 
 
The AMGA Climbing Wall Instructor course (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. We are very excited to have you! Please note, this course is for existing climbers and climbing instructors. Prerequisite: Climb 5.9 on top rope, lead 5.8 (for lead endorsement). Belay qualified. Upon registration, you will receive access to a CWI manual and the CWI pre-test. It is expected that you read the manual completely and finish the pre-test prior to the first day of class. Pretests will be collected on the first day of class. Everyone is expected to watch the Petzl video about belaying with a Gri Gri with the Petzl recommended technique. Participants are encouraged to practice lead belaying with a Gri Gri before the CWI course. The course fee includes an AMGA CWI manual and AMGA membership ($80). If you already possess current membership with AMGA, notify Jonathan Stahl (jmstahl@wsu.edu) prior to registering. Cancellation Policy: Cancellations made up until 2 weeks prior to the registration deadline will receive a full refund. • Cancellations made within 2 weeks prior to the registration deadline receive 50% refund. • Sorry, no refunds are given past the registration deadline.
