Having worked with Kieran for a number of years and also worked alongside him in the Arrochar Mountain Rescue Team, I have no hesitation in supporting him. Kieran has shown himself to be a steady hand in all aspects of dealing with people in the mountain environment being supportive and demonstrating good leadership skills in adverse circumstances. His well developed personal skills allow him to adapt and react to changing circumstances in a fluid and controlled manner. The outcome of this is to allow him to put groups at their ease leading to a safe and enjoyable experience for them all. Overall he is an excellent instructor and would be a positive ambassador for the Mountain Instructor scheme.

Kieran is a focused individual with a great amount of experience as an instructor in many areas with a wide range of clients. Over the last 10 years I have known Kieran he has shown a very high level of profecional behaviour. This has been in his main employment, his freelance work as well as his mountain rescue commitments where he demonstrates his ability to make sound judgments in high pressure situations.

I have seen Kieran coach and Instruct in a range of winter mountainerin skills with beginners, intermediates and alongside his peers. He is always able to draw the best from the group he is working with showing flexibility in his planning and execution. He makes safe decisions based on the needs of the students and the environment . On a peersonal level, I have climbed and skied in a wide range of conditions alongside him and he always seems to be happy in the winter mountain environment. I would have no hesitation in recommending that he enrols on the WMCI scheme.
