Mountain Leaders operate the length and breadth of the country with all sorts of groups of people; from scouts and schoolchildren to outdoor instructors and OAPs.  The qualification is what you make it and there are countless opportunities for passionate Mountain Leaders.  Please check on the Mountain Training website that you have all the prerequisites. At Falkirk we run our training courses in two different formats. The traditional six days back to back or a split weekends. Both courses have six days contact time.
