The American Mountain Guides Association Single Pitch Instructor (SPI) Program teaches climbing instructors to facilitate and instruct proficiently 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 AMGA Rock program.
We offer the SPI Course and SPI Assessment frequently throughout the season, and make room for individuals and small groups to choose private dates. If you need to get a course or exam finished this season but can’t make any of the scheduled choices, then just give us a call and we’ll try to arrange something that works.
Make sure to read over the information and prerequisites on the official AMGA SPI page before booking. Please contact SPI instructor Charlie Townsend with any questions or to inquire about custom or upcoming dates.
