AMGA SPI-Assessment

  • Salt Lake City, Utah

ASSESSMENT DESCRIPTION

The Single Pitch Instructor (SPI) Program teaches climbing instructors to proficiently facilitate and instruct the sport of rock climbing in a single pitch setting. The SPI is the only internationally recognized single pitch climbing instructor certification program in the United States. It was developed to fit in the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) Rock program.

Climbing instructors typically work with higher student-teacher ratios and focus on educating and teaching skills to clients. The International Mountaineering and Climbing Federation (UIAA) has endorsed the AMGA's SPI certificate.

AMGA SPI Assessments are two days in length (minimum of 16 hours assessment time) and take place at a single-pitch climbing area where there is a selection of traditional lead routes of at least 5.6 difficulty and top rope routes of at least 5.8 difficulty. SPI assessments examine all aspects of institutional single-pitch climbing. Day one examines candidates' climbing movement skills and proficiency with technical systems including anchoring and assistance skills. On day two, the examiner may arrange for the participation of volunteer novice clients (non-paying) in order for the candidates to be able to instruct in a group setting. The SPI assessment is organized into four distinct evaluation sessions: climbing movementtechnical skillsteaching ability and group management skills
