Find out about the Climbing Wall Award

The Climbing Wall Award (CWA) is for people who want to supervise groups on indoor and outdoor climbing walls and towers.

It covers the supervision and management of activities such as bouldering, the teaching of basic movement skills, injury avoidance, group management skills and roped climbing, excluding the teaching of leading.

It’s one of the many climbing awards administered by Mountain Training

Mountain Training has produced a film which gives a great insight into the CWA.  It follows a group with an instructor climbing indoors for the day, plus an interview with the instructor.

Climbing Wall Leading Award
This award trains and assesses candidates in the skills required to teach lead climbing skills on indoor or outdoor artificial climbing walls and structures with fixed protection. It builds on the skills gained through either the Climbing Wall Award or Single Pitch Award, one of which candidates must hold to access the Climbing Wall Leading Award scheme.

Coaching Award Scheme
The Coaching Award Scheme is designed to develop the coaching skills of coaches working in indoor climbing walls, sport climbing and bouldering. The scheme builds upon Mountain Training’s other climbing awards to provide coaches with the skills and techniques to develop climbers. There are three awards: Foundation Coach, Development Coach and Performance Coach.

More information is on the coaching page of Mountain Training’s website
