Mountain Training - ML Mountain Leader Training & Assessment (Summer)

A Course for those wanting to lead People in the mountains of the UK and Ireland

The training course is based around the ML syllabus and the particular needs of candidates. We will look at the practical skills and techniques required when leading groups hill walking and camping in the mountains of the UK including aspects of navigation, group management, supervision on steep ground, risk assessment and emergency use of the rope. Consideration of the weather, mountain rescue, the environment and other related topics will also be covered.
 The majority of the course is practically based, 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

Those who have completed a Walking Group Leader Award (WGL) or those who have extensive experience of walking in the high British Mountains
