The AMGA is so over-rated, all you need is to take and pass your single pitch toprope course and then you can take clients out toproping. I live in an AMGA infested town, and most are a joke.
The rock guide certification is reasonable, and the IFMGA certification is pretty inclusive from what I have heard. But I agree the SPI certification is a joke. If you want to see some more serious certifications, check out SPRAT and IRATA level III, for commercial heights professionals. Those certifications are far more intense than anything the AMGA offers. In order to qualify to take the level III test, you need 1,000 hours of documented experience working as a certified level I or II worker under a level III supervisor. If the AMGA had that requirement, things might be a bit different.
