Yes you can train Monstera to grow up a pole. As the plants are natural epiphytes, they grow up a tree trunk. The best way to train them upwards is to create something that emulates a tree trunk.
You can make your own pole using bamboo stakes and coir in which you wrap the coir around 2 bamboo stakes with loose twine, or you can use wire, make a tube and stuff it with wet sphagnum moss. Once you have done this the best idea is to re-pot the Monstera, place the moss pole in the center and then tie the Monstera vines to the pole.
