The British Association of Mountain Guides, BMG, is to hold an Open Day at Plas y Brenin, Capel Curig, North Wales on Saturday 22 May 2010. This is a great opportunity for alpinists who would like to find out more about Guiding as a career. The BMG first ran this event in 2006, with 25 participants attending the day which was aimed at promoting Guiding and explaining the BMG training scheme.

The life of a mountain guide is very rewarding, yet can be very demanding and it is important from the outset to attract the right calibre of climbers and mountaineers. The pre requirements for joining the BMG training scheme are extensive, and part of the open day will focus on helping participants achieve these objectives. This is a great opportunity to meet the BMG Training Officer, Guides involved in the training scheme and also to get to know BMG guides who can assist you on your road to becoming an IFMGA guide.
All participants must have extensive British and Alpine climbing and mountaineering experience and have a genuine interest in Guiding as a career. This day should be of particular interest to experienced alpinists and MIC holders with alpine experience.
Potential applicants should not worry if they haven't yet achieved the level of the BMG Training Scheme entry requirements, as part of the open day is to give you advice on how best to attain these pre requisites. You should however expect to be able to meet these entry requirements within the next 5 years. If in doubt send in an application and we will advise you.
