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.
We may also be able to arrange a free transfer to Plas y Brenin from Llandudno Junction train station, subject to availability. We would need a minimum of one week’s notice prior to your course start date – please contact reception to learn more.
If you've already attended our BMC FUNdamentals of Climbing 1 workshop, come back to broaden your knowledge of athlete development. During this one day workshop you'll develop your coaching techniques for indoor and outdoor climbing. We'll cover precise and accurate footwork, using different handholds, body positioning, and the different techniques used to climb on steep, vertical and slightly overhanging rock. This workshop is part of the training pathway for Mountain Training's Climbing Coach award scheme.
