This qualification trains and assesses candidates in the skills required for instruction of mountaineering, both summer and winter, including snow, ice and rock climbing. It builds on the skills acquired in both the Mountain and Climbing Instructor, and Winter Mountain Leader qualifications; both of which candidates must hold to access the scheme. The Winter Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor is an extensively used professional qualification.
This qualification was previously called the Mountaineering Instructor Certificate (MIC).
