I have just seen an announcement about this, i had no idea that MT were expanding into this area away from providing just leadership/instructor awards. Does anyone have any other information about this?
My first thoughts upon seeing it were, who can run the courses? and are we going to see similar things rolled out within climbing e.g. a mountain training endorsed start climbing or learn to lead skills course?
Anyone have any thoughts?
(apologies if there is another thread on this i had a quick look but couldn't find anything)
In reply to Tom Daniel: And from the horses mouth (Bryn Williams) "the course is a stand alone attendance course so there is no assessment or measure of competence, and is simply intended to be a national scheme structured to inspire and educate new hill walkers. It will not replace personal experience needed to undertake the ML scheme. We'll be uploading information on how to become a Provider within the next week or so, and I'm already pleased to see the positive response. Cheers, Bryn (MTUK Exec Officer)."
