Course providers may elect to deliver only the Top Rope Climbing Instructor course (no leading required) or the full Single Pitch Climbing Instructor course (leading required).  During the training participants will be expected to organize and lead multiple presentations, demonstrate a range of technical skills, discuss and debate various technical systems and educational strategies, develop subject teaching plans, and be challenged to expand their technical skills and educational delivery methods well beyond the climbing instructor level.

Educationally the workshop will address the taxonomy of learning, teaching and learning styles, and share many tips  and tricks for teaching the art of climbing.
