The Mountain Training Association  is pleased to announce that the development of two personal skills courses aimed at new and improving hill walkers is being implemented, with the aim of launching the scheme in April, 2014.

Mountain Training coordinates the training of the Hill and Mountain Skills courses through its network of approved course providers. These courses are a practical introduction to the skills required to get started in hill walking and mountain walking. The course aims to equip participants with the basic knowledge and essential safety skills required to start pursuing their own participation in hill and mountain walking as a leisure time activity.
