AMGA Climbing Wall Instructors Course at Boston Rock Gym

Chuck Boyd and I recently went back to the Boston Rock Gym to co-teach the AMGA Climbing Wall Instructors Course with AMGA instructor Joe Lentini.  Chuck and I needed to help co-teach the course to fulfill our obligations for being able to teach the course on our own.  We had both previously taken the AMGA Providers Course back in December last year with Joe.  The course is two and one half days in length, a minimum of 20 hours of instruction, skills demonstration, and evaluation. The course addresses the basic technical skills necessary to manage an instructional program at a climbing facility, and will address the following general topic areas: Client orientation and instruction, teaching general climbing skills including movement, teaching top-rope and lead belaying techniques, equipment and facility use and rescue and emergency procedures.  Jim and Sara who both work at the Boston Rock Gym took the course from us.  They both did a great job during the course and Chuck and I would like to congratulatethem for passing the course.  Joe Lentini is a fantastic instructor and a pleasure to work with.  If you are ever in the Boston or New Hampshire area and need a guide I would certainly give him a call.  At the same time the Boston Rock Gym is absolutely a amazing gym with a great staff to learn from.
