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.
Adventure Expertise are a small team of mountaineering instructors who are passionate about the courses we deliver and committed to setting the standards for training and assessment courses. Inspiring others and giving our clients the skills to independently make the most out of the mountains is what drives us.
We're proud of our reputation for providing great courses and looking after people in a relaxed and professional way. Many people on our courses come by recommendation which is something we're really grateful for and proud of - it's the acid test of us delivering what we aim for! If you don't know us and want to find out more please give us a call or email us to query anything.
Trainings are our chance to help you become the best leader you can. For us, the essence of good instructing is the ability to pitch at a level appropriate to you, introducing the principles of each skill in the syllabus and building up from there with practice so that you're confident to apply these skills in a variety of scenarios. If you put the effort in to learn, we'll work hard to develop your skills to the required level and beyond - giving you confidence in your abilities whilst having a great week out in the hills with like-minded people.
