/ New Mountain Training hill and mountain skills courses
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)
It could either be a way of ensuring minimum standards of training delivery, or it could be another way of putting the award provider in competition with its own customers...
We shall see. I suspect that membership of the MTA will be a requirement.
Seems like a good idea, hopefully being better than the NNAS stuff.
Interested in becoming a provider myself.
Thanks for that info :-)
Excellent. I have long thought this would be a good move, as I felt there was gap between the basic training available and the ML course.
