Climbing Wall Instructor

The Climbing Wall Instructor (CWI) was launched by Mountain Training in 2008. It is the outcome of considerable consultation with voluntary youth organizations, the education sector and the climbing community.

There is an additional module in supervising abseiling from artificial structures.

The Climbing Wall Instructor (CWI) will appeal to teachers, youth leaders, scout and Duke of Edinburgh Award supervisors who have access to a climbing wall or artificial climbing/abseiling structure.

The Climbing Wall Instructor (CWI) covers the skills needed to introduce and supervise novice climbers on typical top roping and bouldering climbing walls.

Climbing Wall Development Instructor

If you already hold the Climbing Wall Instructor (CWI) or the Rock Climbing Instructor (RCI) and you want to teach lead climbing on artificial walls then the Climbing Wall Development Instructor (CWDI) is for you.

The Climbing Wall Development Instructor (CWDI) was launched by Mountain Training in 2010 and covers the skills needed to teach lead climbing on indoor and outdoor artificial walls.

You must have led at least 50 climbs including some at 6a and logged sessions as a Rock Climbing Instructor and/or Climbing Wall Instructor.
