Title:  Launch of the new Rock Climbing Development Instructor 02/04/2019
Date:  11/04/2019

The Rock Climbing Development Instructor qualification is for experienced instructors wishing to develop a participant’s rock climbing proficiency. This development may extend to lead climbing.

It builds on the skills acquired in the Rock Climbing Instructor qualification, which candidates must hold.

Registrations for this scheme will be available to candidates from 2nd April 2019.  Registration for the Rock Climbing Development Instructor scheme is an application process and you need to meet the following prerequisites:

  • You must be a qualified Rock Climbing Instructor.
  • You must have delivered a minimum of 20 days as a Rock Climbing Instructor at a variety of venues and with a variety of groups, recorded in DLOG.
  • You must have led a minimum of 60 named single pitch routes using leader placed protection in three different climbing areas at VS 4c or above and logged them in DLOG. You may include full multi-pitch routes using leader placed protection (up to 50% of the requirement).
  • You must have led a minimum of 60 sport climbs in three different climbing areas at 6a or above and logged them in DLOG. Up to 50% of this experience can be outside the UK and Ireland.

 

If you can meet all of the above requirements, here's what to do next:

  1. Log in to your Mountain Training Mountaineering Ireland account
  2. Register for the Rock Climbing Development Instructor scheme (this costs €67)
  3. Notify Mountain Training (via the 'Send to Mountain Training' button on the 'Share' tab in DLOG) or in Ireland via the permissions tab in your DLog, that your DLOG is ready to be reviewed

A technical officer will then review your experience in DLOG and if it meets the minimum requirements, you will be notified by email that your registration on the scheme has been approved and this will be reflected in your records..
