Mountain Training’s Ethos

Mountain Training believes in:

·         The safe enjoyment of walking, climbing and mountaineering. We disseminate guidance on good practice and provide training and qualifications for participants, instructors, leaders and coaches.

·         High quality training and assessment delivered by experienced and supportive practitioners.

·         Developing independent walkers, climbers and mountaineers who practise and encourage, sustainable and sympathetic use of the outdoors by all users.

·         Supporting equal access to our sport for people from all backgrounds. We also believe that all people have the potential to develop leadership and coaching skills if trained appropriately.

·         Good leadership is about more than decision making and technical skill; it is about supporting and developing individuals.

·         Inspiring people to enjoy walking, climbing and mountaineering with confidence and skill.
