‘Clients’ needed for AMGA Single Pitch Instructor Assessments

I run American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) Single Pitch Instructor Courses and Assessments in the Southeast, mainly around the Asheville region of NC and I am looking for climbers that wish to play the roll of ‘client’ for the assessment process. The AMGA SPI Assessment is two days long and the examinee on day two (normally a Sunday) has to instruct climbers at a single pitch climbing area for the day. This used to be done by ‘instructing’ the other candidates in the exam but it is a vastly improved situation when the people they are instructing are not part of the examination. So I have started to ask past clients, university students and a like to come along for the second day to act as clients with great success. Of course there is no charge to the people playing client.

This is a great opportunity for recreational climbers to help out with this process, see an AMGA examination and learn more about the AMGA and get a day of climbing instruction in as well! The candidates have to run a group single pitch day which includes climbs (base and top managed sites), rappelling and rescue/assistance components as well as teach a minimum of one pre determined lesson to the group. I need no more than six clients for each date so it will be on a first come first served basis. Here are the upcoming dates:

Sunday March 9th Looking Glass Rock, NC
Sunday April 20th Looking Glass Rock, NC
Sunday May 18th Looking Glass Rock, NC

More dates will be added here later:
