AMGA Multi-Pitch Instructor

New in 2020 – the Multi-Pitch Instructor Course & Exam prepares candidates to guide multi-pitch climbs up to 4 pitches in length (not to exceed 400 ft total) that are not remote in nature, and have simple approaches and descents with minimal short-roping. This program has an emphasis on providing a great client experience while adequately managing risk for both the client and the guide.

  • The 3-day SPI Course
  • The 2-day SPI Assessment (Note: SPI Cert must be valid at the time of the MPI Course and Exam)
  • The 10-day Rock Guide Course

  • Have a current Wilderness First Responder (WFR) Certification [simple_tooltip content=’Higher training needs to be approved by the AMGA Medical Director – examples of acceptable training include: Emergency Medical Technician or Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician’] or higher[/simple_tooltip] that meets the Minimum Guidelines and Scope of Practice for a WFR
