Being a climbing instructor is a fantastically rewarding role and an amazing career choice, and becoming an indoor climbing instructor is a fantastic platform from which to leap in to this awesome career. It can also be either a great standalone career working at a growing number of climbing centres across the UK or used in conjunction with other qualifications as an outdoor instructor.
Our Indoor Climbing Instructor Traineeship (ICI) came about after receiving feedback from various trainees and instructors, as they would have preferred a more supportive pathway to becoming a climbing instructor. So we sat down and designed a great package based on this feedback we know will get you on the right track in an achievable time-frame. It is not a fast track scheme, and we provide no shortcuts to the qualification, but what we do provide is comprehensive feedback and a support package to ensure you have a very strong chance of passing your qualification and provide you with the best possible start to your climbing career.
This course is about preparing you as you work towards becoming a qualified climbing instructor, and to prepare you as fully as is possible for the post-assessment workplace as a confident and independent worker. The course is packed full of hints, tips, problem solving, games and many other activities to make sure you hit the ground running, but also feel completely prepared for your assessment when you’re ready.
