University Communications did a great article about our ice fishing program last January. Taking the Bite Out of Minnesota Winters highlights the experience of international students who participated in the program.

PCIA Climbing Wall Instructors Course - February 15-17, 2013
The PCIA Climbing Wall Instructor Course provides instructors and potential instructors with a in depth and standardized understanding of the skills essential to teaching climbing in an indoor setting. It is the first step in a sequential approach to professional climbing instructor development. The course reinforces the importance of teaching technically accurate information and debunks many common climbing myths. The course emphasizes the presentation of sound fundamental skills to climbing gym participants, the formation of risk assessment and risk management skills and basic problem solving skills such as belay transitions and on wall coaching and assist techniques. Participants will be assessed on both their core knowledge and their ability to effectively teach and coach related skills.
Friday 2/15/13 5pm-9pm
Saturday 2/16/13 8am-6pm
Sunday 2/17/13 8am-5pm
$75 per person
Participants must bring your own climbing harness, shoes, belay device and locking carabiner as well as extra locking carabiners, slings, prusik loops and a cordelette. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear (closed toes and heels).
This is a highly sought training for anyone who frequents a climbing facility or has interest in working in the climbing wall industry. If you are an avid climber, with basic skills, this course will push you forward in your knowledge and understanding of climbing wall teaching, technique and participant management.
SCSU Outdoor Endeavors is pleased to offer this course at a fraction of what you would pay elsewhere for this nationally recognized certification.
