AMGA SPI Course
You also can become a rock climbing guide.
Do you love rock climbing? Do you want to teach others how to enjoy it as much as you do? The Climbing Life Guides does more than just take individuals, pairs, families and small groups on guided rock climbing trips in Joshua Tree National Park. If you want to become an outdoor industry professional, we can also put you through an AMGA Single Pitch Instructor program so that you can start leading people on guided climbs, too. You’ll learn everything you need to know about serving as a climbing instructor during our AMGA SPI training and be able to pass your SPI assessment in no time.
All of the SPI courses and assessments available through The Climbing Life Guides are conducted by our director Nelson Day, who is an AMGA certified Rock Guide. In fact, you’ll be learning from the most highly-certified AMGA SPI provider operating in Joshua Tree National Park. This will put you on the certification track to becoming a certified rock climbing guide quickly and give you the tools you’ll need to guide others during their rock climbing adventures.
The SPI courses offered by The Climbing Life Guides span the course of three days. On the first day, you’ll get an AMGA Single Pitch Instructor program overview and learn the basics of rock climbing with an emphasis on equipment, knots, anchoring and more. The second day of your AMGA instructor program will focus on climbing sites, site organization, risk management and other aspects of rock climbing. On day three, your certified AMGA SPI provider will walk you through instructor demo lead climbs, rappelling, climbing movements and other things you’ll need to pass an SPI assessment. By learning from the best in the business in a place like Joshua Tree, you’ll set yourself up for future success as a professional rock climber and instructor.
