Train The Trainers

  • Hike
  • Mountaineering
  • Mountain Training Award


You've got your sights set on being approved as a course director and providing Mountain Training courses. On this two day 'train the trainers' course you'll gain invaluable experience towards your goal. You'll learn from the best in their field, how to develop the skills and knowledge you need to deliver training for any of the award schemes of Mountain Training or in-house courses. You'll work on the generic skills of the trainer and course director, and learn new teaching techniques. You'll have plenty of opportunity to try these out on real mock students out on the spectacular Snowdonia hills.
