The PCIA Climbing Site Belayer Certification is a basic training class and evaluation created specifically for the needs of summer camps, gyms and outdoor education programs. The purpose of the course is to provide a nationally standardized curriculum of instruction for individuals who provide supervision and belaying of participants at climbing sites. It is designed to train staff in the key skills required to safely operate a climbing tower or to serve as a climbing site assistant under the direction of more experienced and trained staff who are able to provide anchoring, system set-up, facilitation and rescue as needed.

The course curriculum helps participants develop good personal and professional climbing habits at the very beginning of their climbing instructor development.  It also resolves several common climbing myths. The core curriculum is approximately ten hours. Participants who demonstrate competency in core skills are granted a one year Climbing Site Belayer certification.
