This qualification is all about taking people climbing and abseiling on single pitch crags and artificial structures. Whether you're a parent, a volunteer or an outdoor centre instructor, the Rock Climbing Instructor (RCI) qualification trains and assesses experienced rock climbers to instruct climbing.

This qualification used to be called the Single Pitch Award which was revised following a review and relaunched under this new name on 2nd April 2018.
