The Hill & Mountain Skills scheme is a great way to develop your personal skills and confidence in all elements of hill and mountain walking. From planning a coastal walk to navigating in complex terrain, these courses are an ideal opportunity to learn the basics and enjoy the countryside. THIS IS NOT THE HILL AND MOORLAND LEADER SCHEME.
Plas y Brenin is the National Outdoor Centre, and has run Mountain Training courses since their inception.
The centre has been instrumental in developing Mountain Training qualifications by running pilot courses, contributing to the guidance notes and writing the approved textbooks. Our instructors are all experienced practitioners, and are the people who train and assess the vast majority of other Mountain Training course providers.
The non-residential price includes your course fee, equipment hire, in-course transport, use of facilities including classrooms, climbing walls, drying rooms, and tea and cakes when you get in each day.
The residential course fee includes all the above plus comfortable ensuite accommodation and all your meals, meaning you'll have more time and energy to focus on your training or assessment.
