The Fast Track Instructor Scheme


If you'd like to develop a career in the outdoors, our well-established fast track training programme could provide the ideal launch pad.
Over this intensive and exciting four-month training period you'll work towards a clutch of National Governing Body Awards, gather a huge amount of experience and develop your personal skills.
What's more, when you leave you'll take with you the respect and recognition that comes with having been trained at the National Mountain Centre
Rubbing shoulders with the instructors, you'll stay in on-site accommodation seven days a week at Plas y Brenin, even though your course only runs Monday to Friday. That way there will be options 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's more, you'll enjoy three hearty meals a day, overlooking Snowdon in our scenic dining room.




During this intensive and exciting course you'll receive personal skills training in kayaking, open canoeing, hill and mountain walking, rock climbing, orienteering, first aid, risk awareness and hazard management.
As part of a personalised programme, you may complete coaching and leadership training courses for the following CWA, SPA, WGL, ML Summer, REC First Aid at Work, BCU/UKCC Level 1 Certificate and British Cycling Level 2 in Mountain Bike Leadership Training.
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.
At the end of four months with us you'll be able to look back on an incredible experience, during which you will have:




To help streamline your career development even further, our staff will be able to guide you through registration with each of the necessary national governing bodies helping you to understand the progression and pre-requirements for each scheme. You will be expected to cover the cost of each registration yourself.
The course cost includes all meals, accommodation and equipment hire during the four months.
