Post training and before presenting yourself for assessment:
The Rock Climbing Development Instructor qualification is for experienced instructors wishing to develop a participant’s rock climbing proficiency. This development may extend to lead climbing.
Some of the main areas of competency which will be assessed are as follows:
Rock Climbing Development Instructors will have a sound knowledge of lead climbing on both equipped and leader placed protection. They will be able to identify and evaluate commonly used climbing equipment and demonstrate and teach its use to individuals during a lead climbing session.
Management & Decision Making
Rock Climbing Development Instructors should be able to independently organise, plan, manage and deliver safe and progressive learning-to-lead climbing sessions to individuals with a range of climbing abilities.
Judgement and decision making within a risk assessment framework are central to this qualification. Rock Climbing Development Instructors will have a range of techniques through which climbers will learn and develop the skills of lead climbing
The Climbing Environment
Rock Climbing Development Instructors should be informed and experienced in a variety of outdoor climbing environments, including both ‘sport’ and ‘traditional’ venues.
