Instructor Training Month

There are a number of Instructor Training Courses out there these days, but this one is very different to most. Join us for an intense and exciting month of climbing and mountaineering.  At the end of the course there is the opportunity to attend a Rock Climbing Instructor course and a Mountain Leader Award course. We can also arrange bespoke training schemes to fit your aims and availability – get in touch!

The Original Mountain Month, Imitated But Never Bettered!

We have been involved with training outdoor instructors for over 15 years now and it’s something we really love doing. The Original Mountain Month is now into it’s third year and they run twice a year.

There are a number of Instructor Training Courses out there these days, but this one is very different to most. Instead of focusing on many different activities, we focus on what we know best – Rock Climbing and Mountaineering.

Over the month a maximum of 4 clients will join us to develop their skills and abilities under our experienced supervision and guidance.

Because of the low ratio, we will cover far more than just the Rock Climbing Instructor (which replaces the Single Pitch Award) & Mountain Leader syllabus, over the month you will build your lead rock climbing skills and become comfortable on multi pitch routes as well as tackling some of North Wales’ finest scrambles.

During the course you will also have the opportunity to attend an ML & RCI course, either their training or assessment elements, depending upon your levels of experience, we are Mountain Training approved providers for both of these awards.

During the course there will be visiting instructors on some days so you’ll receive some great advice not only about the technical aspects, but also about your future career and other such things from a variety of people. Everyone running the course is massively psyched by climbing and the mountains, this is an awesome course for us to run and you’ll have an ace time!

This is not a “zero to hero” course, but by the end of your time with us you will have received a great grounding ready to start on your outdoor career.
