Mountain Leader Training

The 6-day training course is a National Governing Body course working on the ML syllabus and is designed to meet your specific needs. In particular we look at the practical skills and techniques required when leading groups hill walking and camping in the mountains of the UK. This includes aspects of:

  • Navigation
  • Group management
  • Supervision on steep ground
  • Risk assessment
  • Emergency use of the rope
  • Consideration of weather, mountain rescue, the environment and other related topics

The majority of the course is practical; however, some is of a theoretical nature. At times you may find yourself outdoors in adverse weather and you should be prepared for this. There will be an overnight camp and night navigation exercise.
