Before you attend a Rock Climbing Instructor assessment, make sure you have done the following:
*Mountain Training Board Ireland recognises that these changes to the prerequisites may present challenges for those who have already completed their Single Pitch Award training and wish to attend a Rock Climbing Instructor assessment. Therefore there will be leeway given on the outdoor sport climbs requirement for Rock Climbing Instructor assessment for those who have already completed their Single Pitch Award training, until 31st December 2018. The minimum requirement of 10 outdoor sport climbs can be waived for such candidates during this period, provided that they have met the minimum indoor climbing requirement. It should be noted that this does not affect the standard of the assessment and candidates may be asked to complete a lead sport climb on their assessment course. From 1st January 2019 all of the prerequisites of the scheme will have to be met by all Rock Climbing Instructor candidates.
This Rock Climbing Instructor Assessment is a two-day and two-evening course which will assess the syllabus requirements of candidates within the scheme.
Suitable qualified and experienced assessors will observe candidates operating at an appropriate level with regard to the scheme. This will include the following:
This Rockclimbing Instructor Assessment is for those who wish to take responsibility for climbing with students at the crag. Candidates should ensure they have fulfilled all course pre-requisites for the scheme.
As you can see from the programme we will spend full days at crags potentially in a range of weather conditions so bring your waterproofs, thermals and boots for the walk in.
Whilst packed lunches and meals are provided as part of the course we do not supply flasks or water bottles.
Although Tollymore stores has a full range of all necessary climbing equipment it is expected at this stage of the scheme candidates will have much of their own personal climbing equipment.
Tollymore will supply all group equipment and ropes for the course.
The Rockclimbing Instructor Assessment course fee includes kit, equipment, in course transport, coaching, food and accommodation.
Course accommodation will be in shared twin ensuite rooms. If you would prefer not to share a room, single occupancy may be available for an additional charge.
As you are probably aware the current advice from the Northern Ireland Executive, Health Promotion Agency NI and Health & Safety Executive NI, as well as our expert group within Sport NI is that we cannot deliver any face to face courses for our customers including use of the Hot Rock Climbing Wall.
We know that you and many others like minded folk are very keen to get back on track with your plans to attend and complete a range of personal skills training and qualifications in a range of disciplines.
Believe us when we say we are equally keen to get outside with you and help you reach your goals and complete that journey.
How do we know? Because every day we get emails and phone calls asking when will courses resume and with every NI Executive mention of easing of restrictions the emails and phone calls are more frequent……
