Association of Mountaineering Instructors


The Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI) is the representative body for professionally qualified Mountaineering and Climbing Instructors in the UK and Ireland.

Visit the Association of Mountaineering Instructors' website.

AMI was formed in 1990 to represent the interests of the highly experienced mountaineers and climbers who have undergone rigorous training and assessment to qualify under the Mountain Training UK (MTUK) Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor Scheme.

All full members of the Association are holders of the Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor qualification or Winter Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor qualification, more information here.

Trainee membership is open to those who have completed their Mountaineering and Climbing training course. In this way we aim to help and assist those instructors who are at the beginning of their outdoor career by offering support, workshops and access to the AMI civil liability insurance scheme.

AMI is committed to ensuring the continuing high standards of climbing and mountaineering instruction in the future.
