Are 100's of days of free climbing instruction being delivered by unqualified climbing instructors?

Updated: Jan 22, 2020

Are hundreds of days of free climbing instruction being delivered by climbing instructors unqualified and not up to the job?


I ask because I’ve seen some rather polished adverts for climbing instruction recently. These adverts look really good but do carry a caveat that the instructor is not yet qualified. The instructor has been trained to teach climbing. They are merely consolidating this training, the customer is therefore simply taking advantage of some free instruction whilst the instructor polishes their skills as they prepare for their assessment. Nothing wrong with that surely?
