AMGA Single Pitch Instructor Assessment Enchanted Rock Texas

 

  • Date:Tentative Dec 9-10 2014
  • Gender: Coed
  • Age Group: 18+
  • Availability: 6 Spot
  • Cost: $345.00

 

Paired with the Instructor Course, the assessment is how you become certified as an SPI. Though it is possible to challenge the assessment without taking the course, it is not recommended by the AMGA due to how technically specific their guiding practices are. In other words: You can be a very skilled and experienced climber and still fail the assessment on technicality simply because your techniques are not in line with what they teach in the course. This course needs a min of 4 participants. We recommend travel insurance for all participatns. A shuttle can be arranged from Austin Bergstrom international airport to Fredericksburg area, then onto Enchanted Rock for a small fee in conjunction with your course! Contact OWA for details.
