Climbing Wall Instructor

If you would like to teach climbing on indoor climbing walls or mobile climbing towers then this is the course for you. In this two day course you can get to grips with all the technical skills and safety requirements required to safely supervise people who wish to climb indoors.

This course does not cover lead climbing, for that you will need the Climbing Wall Development Instructor scheme which is a higher qualification. If you are interested in abseiling training you can also do the Climbing Wall Instructor Abseil Module which is an add on module to this course.


Pre-Requisites and Registration

Mountain Training requires that all students are registered with them prior to commencing the course. Registration and course guidance notes are available from Mountain Training here:



The areas in which you will be trained and assessed are as follows.

  • Technical Competence

Detailed information on each of the above topics can be found in the Climbing Wall Award Handbook here:
