ROCK CLIMBING INSTRUCTOR


Rock Climbing Instructor

Running the Rock Climbing Instructor courses is one of my work highlights. I've been a rock climber since I was 12 years old and the Rock Climbing Instructor (formerly the Single Pitch Award) was my first mountain-based qualification I gained and I've been introducing and improving climbers and helping develop instructors ever since.

RE-ASSESSMENT

I can offer all aspects of re-assessments.
