Welcome to Module 1

A wonderful and warm welcome to 12 Steps to Climbing Confidence. Congratulations on becoming part of this movement of confidence and personal satisfaction in climbing.  To get started, watch the video: 


The training is made up of twelve modules, which you will access online, as you are doing now.  Each module can stand alone, but as each module passes, you will carry new knowledge and skills to the next module, a bit like building a house.  Module 1 and 2 are the foundations.  Modules 3 to 11 are the walls and roof. Module 12, the final module, gives you the doors and windows – it’s what makes the house capable of withstanding all weathers.  Module 12 is what will help you to go away and be resilient in your climbing.

Throughout the course you will be asked to give your ideas, comments and feedback.  We want to start this from day 1, so we would love to hear your perspectives.  This is your first chance:
