The Summer Mountain Leader (ML) scheme is designed for people who want to lead groups in the mountains, hills and moorlands of the UK and Ireland, in non-winter conditions.
If you love being out in the mountains and want to share your enthusiasm with others, become a Mountain Leader and you’ll never look back!
We provide Summer ML Training and Assessment courses throughout the year. All courses are based from our guest house in Llanberis, Snowdonia (www.dolperis.co.uk) where comfortable, self- catering accommodation is available if required.
For ML training you need to have logged a minimum of 20 Quality Mountain days in three mountainous areas of the UK, and for ML assessment a minimum of 40 quality mountain days. You will also need a valid first aid certificate (Minimum of 16 hours.) for assessment. We recommend Kath Wills: https://www.activefirstaid.co.uk.
Please see our Training and Assessment pages for available dates.
