PPC BSA Climbing Instructor (CI) Training
Highly skilled training to become a BSA qualified PPC Level II Climbing Instructor (CI). This qualifies you to join our paid Council Climbing and COPE program staff, and help run our safe and exciting outdoor top-roped rock climbing and rappelling programs. You will learn the skills required to supervise and teach Scouts basic climbing fun in Ground School, to select and rig a rock climbing site, and to take Scouts climbing and rappelling on rock crags! PPC Level II CIs are also allowed to run their unit climbing activities at Mt. Allamuchy Scout Reservation (MASR). Topics include: Gear inspection and management, Ground School, Site Selection, Bolted and Natural Anchor System Rigging, and Emergency Procedures.
PPC qualification as a Level II or Level I CI depends on your performance during training, and on individual evaluations while on staff for two additional PPC climbing events after CI training, e.g., SLIC, COPE or PPC climbing sessions.
(NOTE: Candidates from other Councils should verify that this program meets their Council’s CI staff requirements.)
