Mountain Training Qualifications



Mountain Training is the awarding body for skills courses and qualifications in walking, climbing and mountaineering. All of the nationally-recognised schemes are designed to educate and train people so that they can safely enjoy the climbing walls, crags, coast, hills and mountains of our beautiful country. Mountain Training Qualifications train and assess people to look after other people in these environments, whether that's leading a walk in the mountains, coaching in a climbing wall or teaching multi pitch rock climbing. People who hold these qualifications have been assessed at a nationally agreed standard and may be volunteers, youth workers, outdoor instructors or teachers.

Check out our range of courses to find the one that's best for you.

Before you book onto a Leading Edge Mountain Training Qualifications course or award, make sure you have registered on the scheme with Mountain Training.
