SPI instructor course with AMGA and Mountain Madness rock instruction

AMGA Single Pitch Instructor Course and Exam

SPI Certification Program

The AMGA Sin­gle Pitch Instruc­tor Pro­gram is the only nation­al­ly rec­og­nized sin­gle pitch climb­ing instruc­tor cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­gram and is rec­og­nized by many land man­agers, insur­ance com­pa­nies, asso­ci­a­tions, and of course the gen­er­al pub­lic. The AMGA Sin­gle Pitch Instruc­tor Pro­gram has been cre­at­ed to fit in the AMGA Rock Dis­ci­pline train­ing pro­gram, tak­ing off from the AMGA Climb­ing Wall Instruc­tor Pro­gram and great­ly improv­ing the instructor’s skills and inte­grates into the next lev­el of train­ing, the AMGA Rock Instruc­tor Course. Many of the SPI Pro­gram Instruc­tors teach high­er-lev­el cours­es for the AMGA and serve on the AMGA’s Tech­ni­cal Com­mit­tee — they are active­ly involved in all lev­els of instruc­tor and guide train­ing in the AMGA.
