To add to what Al said above, the SPA course certainly sharpens up your rope technique, choice of anchors etc. Just remember that it is an instructing certificate, though some people seem to regard it as a de-facto climbing qualification. Thankfully there are no qualifications in climbing and may it remain so always. That said, we all find ourselves taking out novices from time to time and are in this respect all teachers, so familiarity with the specific skills isn’t a bad thing.
