The Fast Track Instructor Scheme
If you would like to develop a career in the outdoors, our new fast track training programme could provide the ideal launch pad.
Over this intensive and exciting four-month training period you will work towards a clutch of National Governing Body Awards, gather a huge amount of experience and develop your personal skills.
What is more, when you leave you will take with you the respect and recognition that comes with having been trained at the National Mountain Centre
Rubbing shoulders with the instructors, you will stay in on-site accommodation seven days a week at Plas y Brenin, even though your course only runs Monday to Friday. That way you will be free 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 is more, you will enjoy three hearty meals a day, overlooking Snowdon in our scenic dining room.
During this intensive and exciting course you will receive personal skills training in kayaking, open canoeing, hill and mountain walking, rock climbing, first aid, orienteering and risk awareness and hazard management.
As part of a personalised programme, you may complete coaching and leadership training courses for the following depending on your own experience and pre-requirements:
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 also be able to pick up plenty of advice and guidance from our staff during your stay.
And, provided you meet the pre-requirements, you will have the opportunity to attend assessment courses for any of the above. Along with the structured course content there will be many opportunities to gather valuable work and personal-skills experience and career advice from those around you.
This course is also ideal for anyone who is either taking a career break or works in the outdoors industry overseas and would like to develop a rich awareness of UK legislation, structure and good practice.
