This qualification trains and assesses candidates in the skills required to lead hillwalking groups in summer conditions on mountainous routes not requiring the planned use of a rope. Established in 1964, this was the first qualification created by Mountain Training.
Mountain Leader assessment course Why do your mountain Leader assessment course with Climb365 We base our courses in the heart of the Lake District fells and aim to spend as much time as possible on the mountains rather than in a classroom. We see the assessment process as a continuous one where there is scope for learning and readjustment of ideas while being assessed. We aim to give you as many opportunities as possible to relax and be yourself. We believe strongly in leaving space within the assessment process for you to show improvement in skill level. We hope that you will leave the assessment having improved your mountain leadership skills and having learnt and built upon your skills. All our staff are highly qualified Mountain Instructors and have many years’ experience of Mountain Leader courses as well as working with groups of young people in the outdoors. The course will cover the Assessment syllabus of the Mountain Leader scheme and is Mountain Training recognised and approved. We shall review the home paper on the first day of the course. The course will start at 9.00 a.m on the first day and finish at tea time (around 4 pm) on the last day.
