See the Instructor Contacts page to see when you are due for recertification.

To help in the administration of our association (which is done voluntarily by our executive team), members are asked to submit relevant documentation by May 31st in the year of registration expiry.

When your recertification falls due, please provide evidence of the following to the Membership Secretary and pay $100 for 2 years membership (bank details below).

Your TCIA assessment cost includes your first year of TCIA Membership – thereafter a recurring cost of $100 every two years is payable as part of the requalification process.

  • Instruct a minimum of 10 sessions, over a two year period. *
  • If you hold an ICG accreditation alongside an outdoor certification, you need to demonstrate instructional currency for both streams in your logbook collectively up to !0 sessions,  And demonstrate ongoing currency personally up to !0 sessions in both streams.



Formerly known as BAI/TRA

  • Instruct a minimum of 10 sessions, over a two year period. *


  • Instruct a minimum of 10 sessions, over a two year period. *
  • Lead climb 20 different routes of your own climbing. A minimum of 10 of these should be traditional climbing conducted in a variety of areas. No minimum grade is specified.


  • Instruct a minimum of 10 sessions over a two year period. *
  • Climb a minimum of 50 pitches at a variety of locations (at least half will be traditional climbing and at least half will be in a multi-pitch setting). A minimum standard of Grade 15 is required for all pitches.

* If you hold multiple accreditations (ie BAG and ICG), your logbook must show a reasonable number of sessions in each stream to provide an argument for currency of skills. Members that do not have enough verifiable logged sessions may be required to resit assessment to verify the currency of their skills.



  • Members who allow their certification to lapse for six months (or longer) will require a full reassessment prior to being recertified.
  • In previous years, the TCIA has asked members to provide evidence of their current first aid qualifications when applying for recertification. In line with other outdoor professional bodies in Australia, we have made the decision to no longer require this evidence when you submit your logbook for recertification. It is, however, a community expectation that outdoor professionals hold current first aid qualifications, the TCIA strongly encourages you to pursue and maintain these to support safe work practices in both your vocational and recreational endeavours.
