About

Programme

The seminar is for MTS Providers, Course Directors and staff involved in the delivery of Mountain Training Scotland’s Winter Mountain Leader Award.  Attendance counts as 1 CPD point for AMI/MTA members.

The intention is to review the previous seasons, lessons learned and an up-date on a number of issues related to the Winter ML scheme including an update from Mark Diggins, the co-ordinator of the SAIS..

The programme is more discussion than practical.

Please ensure you have a copy of the Winter ML Handbook, Winter ML Skills Checklist  and the Guidance Notes for Trainers and Assessors.
