Becoming a rock climbing instructor

Becoming a climbing instructor

So you’ve fallen in love with climbing and want to turn your hobby into something that you do to earn money (and who wouldn’t want to get paid to climb?!). Sadly, most of us aren’t going to be world champions but there are other ways to ensure you can free yourself from the shackles of office life and take an enjoyable leap towards getting an active job.

With our sport growing at a rate of knots (you can’t have missed this) there is great demand for climbing instructors, enthusiastic folk who want to spread the love for rock and all that it offers.

Help us keep fellow climbers updated. If you've got an entry that you think we should add, please send us an email to
