Becoming an AMGA SPI Provider

Single Pitch Instructor (SPI) Providers are a vital component of the AMGA. Based throughout the country, SPI Providers teach AMGA SPI courses and facilitate assessments. 

As representatives of the AMGA and providers of the SPI curriculum – we look for dedicated educators with comprehensive teaching and/or mentoring experience that are committed to helping students succeed. In addition to climbing and technical expertise, being able to articulate written and verbal feedback is an essential skill for those interested in becoming a provider. We are also seeking individuals who are committed to creating inclusive learning environments for all aspiring climbing instructors. The process of becoming an SPI Provider is outlined below.
