* IIT refers to Instructor In Training. The course is the same as the level I equivalent.

* We are working to develop a Climbing Level II Instructor course.  Stay tuned for details.

In addition to the above course, there is a course taught during summer camp referred to as Level I that is strictly climb and rappel. This mostly resembles the Foundation Level I. At present we will continue teaching this. Be aware that you will need to cover the remaining parts of foundations to proceed through the courses.
