Flashed provides Instruction for climbing wall staff to help them operate their climbing lessons. We provide CWI (Climbing Wall Instructor) Certification Program. The purpose of the certification program is to provide certification for climbing instructors and to set performance standards that can be easily adopted worldwide. 

Our Instructors are ACMG and CWI certified and use the 4 part model of instruction (Visual Demonstration, Skill Break-Down, Practice and Review & Conclusion). Our Instructors have a wealth of experience having instructed at our sister climbing gyms in Calgary, AB.
