The Mountain Training Association
Mountain Training’s Association is the membership organisation of the collection of awarding bodies for qualifications in walking, climbing and mountaineering that make up Mountain Training UK and Ireland. Our mission is to build a community of confident and expert coaches, instructors and leaders.
We exist to enable candidates for Mountain Training qualifications to enhance their skills and knowledge through a programme of workshops and peer lead events and activities, build communities regionally and nationally for the sharing of ideas and experience, run mentoring opportunities for candidates working towards assessment as well as provide guidance and information on all aspects of working in walking, climbing and/or mountaineering. All of this is to enable our members to be the best leaders, instructors and coaches they can be and to make the activities of walking, climbing and mountaineering more sustainable, responsible and safer.
