The Climbing Wall Instructor (CWI) qualification trains and assesses candidates in the skills required to supervise climbers on purpose built artificial climbing walls and boulders. It is ideal for people who work at climbing walls or at venues with permanent or mobile climbing towers.
There is also an optional Abseil Module (often run in conjunction with Climbing Wall Instructor training and assessment courses) which is all about supervising abseiling on artificial structures.
CCAT Course fee: £40
Eligibility: Staff Cadets and CFAVs
Further information: The Mountain Training Website provides guidance on how to become a Climbing Wall Instructor. The CWI Candidate Handbook which is available as a free download gives details on how to register for the award, the training syllabus, qualification remit, log book requirements and training and assessment course prerequisites.
