There are over 20 000 people throughout Britain and Ireland holding climbing and mountaineering leadership qualifications. Some are professionals but many are leaders working in a voluntary capacity, or individuals wanting skills they can use when climbing or walking.
In 1964 the Mountain Leader Training Board was established by the BMC and the Central Council for Physical Recreation to train mountain leaders. Over the years Mountain Leader Training has changed in structure, and there are now home nation boards for England (MLTE), Scotland (MLTS), Wales (MLTW) and Northern Ireland (MLTNI). Mountain Leader Training UK (MLTUK) coordinates the work of the four home nation boards and administers the higher instructor qualifications.
On a broad level, the Mountain Leader Training boards administer the formal training schemes and the BMC dispenses training advice in areas such as mountaineering clubs, student clubs and youth participation. The different organisations work very closely to ensure that all aspects of training are covered.
Learning new skills is useful at every stage of your climbing and mountaineering career.
Contact the BMC for general advice or the Mountain Leader Training boards to find out how MLT Awards could be of use to you.
