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.
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.
