Our association

Mountain Training Association 100

Mountain Training's own association helps all our candidates working towards their qualification/s and offers continuing development opportunities for those candidates who hold a qualification. Through mentoring, skills specific or refresher workshops as well as peer events and activities we give candidates the ideal opportunity to practise all areas of the syllabi in a supportive and friendly environment with other members on a similar pathway or with those holding further qualification. Mountain Training's association will help your route to qualification and beyond run that much easier. Whether you're planning to attend a training course, have got your assessment coming up, already work/volunteer in the outdoor industry, or just want to stay informed about what's going on in Mountain Training, our association has something for you; assisting you through your qualification journey and for the rest of your outdoor career.
