From RCI and ML courses, to month-long intensive training, we offer Instructor Training with a difference! We also arrange bespoke training schemes to fit your aims and availability – get in touch!

Mountain Leader Award

The Mountain Leader scheme is designed for people who want to lead groups in the mountains, hills and moorlands of the UK and Ireland. If you love being out in the mountains and want to share your enthusiasm with others, become a Mountain Leader and you’ll never look back (unless you’re checking your group’s still there!). Mountain Leaders operate the length and breadth of the country with all sorts of groups of people; from scouts and schoolchildren to outdoor instructors and OAPs. The award is what you make it and there are countless opportunities for passionate Mountain Leaders. We have years of experience delivering fun and relaxed courses, whilst imparting loads of knowledge! We are also able to provide reassessments, please get in touch if you want to have a chat about arranging one as they are bespoke sessions.
