Indoor Climbing Guide (ICG) Training and Assessment

This qualification is for teachers, school administrators and outdoor leaders who wish to safely facilitate indoor climbing sessions. It is a requirement of the Department of Education in Tasmania for all staff facilitating indoor climbing sessions to hold this (or an equivalent) qualification.

This qualification is not transferable to the outdoors.

Candidates are expected to:

  • Demonstrate simple climbing skills on artificial surfaces
  • Apply climbing skills on artificial surfaces
  • Establish belays for climbing on artificial surfaces
  • Guide climbing activities on artificial surfaces
  • Perform vertical rescues

Training and assessment for Indoor Climbing Guide is generally held over two consecutive days, but individual days can be organised at an agreed rate.

Instructors previously qualified at the TRG/SPG/MPG level may have been considered to be allowed to run indoor climbing sessions. This is no longer the case. All guides/instructors working in the indoor climbing environment should hold the ICG qualification in addition to their outdoor qualification.
