The AMGA Single Pitch Instructor (SPI) Program teaches climbing instructors to proficiently facilitate and instruct the sport of rock climbing in a single pitch setting. 

Prerequisites

  • You are a current member of the AMGA.
  • You have successfully completed an AMGA Single Pitch Instructor Course.
  • You have led a minimum of 40 traditional routes, most of which should be 5.6 and on a variety of rock types.
  • You are able to comfortably lead 5.6 traditional routes, which means you place protection.
  • You are able to comfortably climb 5.8 on top rope.
  • The SPI Assessment can be taken directly following the SPI Course if the candidate successfully completed the course and meets the assessment prerequisites. However, it is highly recommended that the SPI Course candidate take time practicing and consolidating the skills learned on the course before assessment (6-12 months).
  • You do not need First Aid training to take the course or assessment. However, it is your responsibility to hold appropriate medical certification for the location that you are working in.

How would you rate your risk management practices? This self-assessment tool can help you answer that question. Could you use some support?

In a NOLS Risk Management Training, you are given a framework from which to evaluate your own program's risk management plan. The framework is based on five areas of risk management: risk management oversight; core curriculum; administrative process; staff training and field risk management; and field support services and emergency planning. You will go through a series of exercises and you will be able to ask questions that are pertinent to your specific program and pertinent industry practices. The training culminates in an in-depth emergency scenario. You will leave the training having written a 10-step personalized action plan. 

Tools You'll Receive:
  • Risk Management Action Plan Workbook
  • NOLS Crisis Management Template and NOLS Wilderness Medicine Protocol Package
  • Resource examples and templates, including a risk release, health form, orientation checklist, transportation policy, and more.
