RCI Rock Climbing Award

Previously known as the Single Pitch Award (SPA) the Rock Climbing Instructor award got a facelift and re-naming in April 2018.

Whether you're an experienced outdoor instructor, sports coach or health and fitness professional, this is the place to come to learn how to teach rock climbing and abseiling on real rock, in the outdoor environment.

The Rock Climbing Instructor (RCI) award is designed and administered by Mountain Training who is the National Governing Body for rock climbing, hill walking and mountaineering in the UK. They set the training syllabus and assessment standards.

Before attending a training course, you must be an experienced climber and be able to lead climbs outdoors, on real rock and using traditionally placed protection.
