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.
This is a SPLIT weekend assessment
Weekend 1 - Sat 23rd & Sun 24th May
Weekend 2 - Fri 29th, Sat 30th, Sun 31st May
All our SML courses at Falkirk will be directed by John Jackson (WMCI).
This is a non-residential course so leaves candidates free to choose their own level of accommodation. However, our central Scotland location means you can enjoy the mountains by day and still get back to your own bed at night.
Remember, the final 3 days, 2 nights will be spent out on exped.
From Falkirk we have an abundance of outdoor training venues to use, all within a short drive away from our centre. Transport from Falkirk each day will be in one of our centre minibuses (included in the course fee).
Our Base in Falkirk is located a short walk away from Falkirk Train and bus station. Public transport runs regularly to Falkirk from all across central Scotland including from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling.
If you have any questions about this course, then please feel free to contact John via the ‘enquire’ button, email or text.
