The Climbing Wall Instructor Program (CWI) certifies 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, to evaluate the skills of climbing instructors and to provide guidance for further professional development. There are two certification levels:

  • AMGA CWI Top Rope

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, run over 2.5 days. CWI Certification lasts for three years.
