This qualification is all about supervising safe climbing and abseiling sessions on single pitch crags and artificial structures. Whether you're a parent, a volunteer or an outdoor centre instructor, the Rock Climbing Instructor qualification trains and assesses experienced rock climbers to instruct climbing. 

This qualification used to be called Single Pitch Award which was revised following a review and relaunched under this new name on 2nd April, 2018.
