"Just completed my Mountain Leader assessment with Paul and totally recommend him! A great week in which Paul's attitude instantly makes you feel comfortable and allows you to show what you know and what you can do. Great knowledge and advice from him and his team."
The Mountain Leader Award is one of the most highly sought after qualifications to lead people in the outdoors, it is specifically aimed at those who want to lead in the mountains of the UK. All you need is to be a committed mountain walker and have a desire and passion to share the mountains with others, it’s quite simply the best job in the World!
Take a look at this film on the award by the BMC.
The mountains of the UK are remote, technical and exposed to harsh unpredictable weather. This makes them a hazardous place for novice walkers and the Mountain Leader is designed to help responsible leaders who wish to operate in mountainous terrain in summer conditions. A Mountain Leader course will develop your group management skills, the ability to navigate in all conditions, to deal with mountain hazards including steep ground and increase your awareness of environmental issues. There is an expedition element to the scheme. The Award is overseen by Mountain Training. For full details and how to register click here.
