Not much.. A lot of it's experience. I've seen some gyms require you take an instructor course that they teach before you can become and employee. But if a book is all that's required, by a couple of John Longs books.. quite helpful

good luck

I'd watch out for what the gym is hiring for, unless you feel competant in your skills and knowledge already (which could be, depends on how much you're into it). Are they hiring for a front desk type position, greeting people, taking money, etc?

Or does it also involve teaching, watching newbies for potentially life endangering mistakes? Don't jump into a position of responsibility if you're not sure of yourself.

Taking courses is always the fastest way to acquire knowledge fast. It is the only reason to take them.

Hey FIN...

I've joined Vertical Excape now. I was there Thur, Sat and today(Sun).

I think we might have just met today. Were you bouldering? I was the tall guy, glasses and ballcap. Was around 3:00-4:00.
