MOUNTAIN LEADER


Mountain Leader

The Mountain Leader qualification is the outdoor industries gold standard award. The dedication required is high and I love sharing the journey with others as they undertake the training and progress towards assessment. Watching people perform well and succeed on assessment is one of the greatest highlights of my work.

MOUNTAIN LEADER

If you love being out in the mountains and want to share your enthusiasm with others, become a Mountain Leader and you’ll never look back (unless you’re checking your group’s still there!). Mountain Leaders operate the length and breadth of the country with all sorts of groups of people; from scouts and schoolchildren to outdoor instructors and OAPs. The qualification is what you make it and there are countless opportunities for passionate Mountain Leaders.

RE-ASSESSMENTS

I can offer all aspects of re-assessments.
