If you would like to develop a career in the outdoors, our new fast track training programme could provide the ideal launch pad.
Over an intensive four-month training period you will work towards a clutch of National Governing Body Awards, gathering a huge amount of experience and developing your personal skills.
What is more, when you leave you will take with you the respect and recognition that comes with having been trained at the National Mountain Centre.
Rubbing shoulders with the instructors, you will stay in on-site accommodation seven days a week at Plas y Brenin, even though your course only runs Monday to Friday. That way you will be free to either join in with other courses taking place at the weekends or simply go climbing or paddling with your new-found friends at the National Mountain Centre.
What is more, you will enjoy three hearty meals a day, overlooking Snowdon in our scenic dining room.
This course is also ideal for anyone who is either taking a career break or works in the outdoors industry overseas and would like to develop a rich awareness of UK legislation, structure and good practice.
As part of a personalised programme, you may complete the following:
For those with a greater range of experience, and perhaps some of the above qualifications, it may be possible to work towards or complete some of the following: ML Winter, IML training, MIA training, BCU/UKCC Level 2 Certificate, BCU WW Safety and Rescue, and REC First Aid Trainer.
