WHAT IS CWI? The Climbing Wall Association sponsors the “Climbing Wall Instructor certification program” (CWI). The purpose of the certification program is to establish a voluntary certification for climbing instructors and a uniform set of performance standards that can be easily adopted worldwide. HOW DOES IT WORK? The program is established and empowered by the CWA Board of Directors, while the CWI Certification Standards Committee and CWA personnel are charged with the promotion, delivery, and maintenance of the program. CWI Providers confer or deny certification for individual climbing wall instructor candidates by assessing their ability to teach technical climbing skills, especially belay technique, on artificial terrain. WHY BECOME A PROVIDER? For WA facilities with their own Provider, the CWI curriculum can be easily integrated into existing staff training and professional development programs to create an affordable, sustainable way to certify your own staff as Climbing Wall Instructors. HOW DO I BECOME A PROVIDER? In order to be a certification program provider, you must apply, be accepted, abide by the program policies and curriculum and maintain your CWA membership. Pre-requisites for CWI Certification program provider include: 1. Current membership in the CWA (provider or provider’s employer). 2. 21 years of age. 3.
