NICAS Climbing and Bouldering Induction (3 July)

July 3 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Coach climbing workshop with instructor watching

This is a “Tier 1” induction to the NICAS Climbing and NICAS Bouldering schemes, which has been adapted to run online. It is aimed at – and mandatory for – Course Directors, Assistant Course Directors, Technical Advisors and Competent Persons; however, we welcome all other wall staff, especially coaches. If your wall is considering an application to run our schemes, this induction can help you make an informed choice and answer questions you may have.

About the induction

This online training session will be held on Zoom. Your trainer will be Graham Little.

This induction will cover:

  • An overview of NICAS schemes
  • Delivery and assessment standards for each level of NICAS Climbing and NICAS Bouldering
  • Understanding the roles and responsibilities in delivering our schemes
  • How to use our candidate management system
  • How to deliver inductions and re-inductions to staff
  • Where to find online resources and get help

This is not a course on how to be a coach, but how to use existing coaching skills in the effective delivery of NICAS Climbing and/or NICAS Bouldering.

Course Fees

This induction costs £29.99 + VAT (£35.99) per person.

What you will need
