Mountain Leader Training (ML)

Mountain Leader (ML) training is for those who wish to lead others in the mountains, hills, and moorlands of Ireland and the UK, in summer conditions. It is designed to promote the safe enjoyment of the mountains and provides instruction in the skills required for those who wish to lead groups. Mountain Leader training is usually split into two blocks but can also be completed in one week long block. Rock climbing, use of the rope, and leading groups in winter conditions are not covered by the ML. Mountain Leader Courses are available throughout Ireland.
