SUMMER MOUNTAIN LEADER TRAINING AND ASSESSMENT COURSES
COURSES APPROVED BY MOUNTAIN TRAINING SCOTLAND
We are pleased to be the only Scottish Summer ML provider recommended by
World Challenge Expeditions to their expedition leaders.
Our course prices are the most competitive in the UK and our course quality second to none.
Before attending a Summer ML Training Course, potential candidates must register
with one of the home nation Mountain Leader Training Boards. In Scotland this would
usually be Mountain Training Scotland (MTS, tel: 01479 861248). However, you may
register, or be registered, with another UK Board if you so wish and still attend
an ML training or assessment course with us in Scotland.
Please remember, if you have any questions about a Summer ML training or assessment course, feel free to either email us or give us a call on 01340 871071. We'll be very happy to help.
The location for most of our courses is Grantown On Spey, which is well serviced with the usual amenities. Easy to access, only a few minutes from the A9 and not too far from the main railway line from the south at Aviemore, Grantown offers access to excellent terrain for both training and assessment. A very comfortable guest house B+B option is available as well as a bunkhouse..

SUMMER MOUNTAIN LEADER TRAINING
This six day ML training course provides instruction in both personal and leadership skills relevant to summer mountain walking, with an emphasis on the management of groups in mountainous terrain. The course is run over a full week, all elements of which must be attended by the candidate. Topics covered are as set out in the mountain training board syllabus, but will include areas such as navigation, route planning, hazard avoidance, river crossing, security on steep ground, party leadership, mountain weather and personal and group equipment selection and use. A two day, one night, expedition will be undertaken during the course.

This five day ML assessment course is for those who have either completed the ML training course or, in the case of the most experienced candidates, have applied for and been granted exemption from the training course by their Mountain Training Board. Many syllabus aspects will be tested during the week, and candidates should be well prepared. A three day, two night, expedition will be included.
