A programme of skills-training courses in scrambling, climbing and navigation specifically designed for members of BMC affiliated clubs.

The BMC and the AMI (Association of Mountaineering Instructors) are working together on this programme to offer club members the opportunity to learn skills to help them to become more independent walkers, climbers and scramblers.

With an array of courses, venues, dates and instructors this programme brings training courses closer to members, and at a very accessible cost.

Following feedback from club members we are offering a range of one-day courses run on weekend dates.  The list of courses is below and more information about the content can be found in this download.

 

There are 8 different one-day courses available

  1. Intro to navigation skills and being safe in the hills (£40)
  2. Next steps navigation, including poor weather navigation (£40)
  3. Intro to scrambling (not using ropes) (£40)
  4. Next steps scrambling (£50)
  5. Intro to trad leading skills (£50)
  6. Improving your trad leading skills (£50)
  7. Intro to sport leading skills (£50)
  8. Skills for traditional climbing on sea cliffs (£50)

The final location / meeting point for each course will be confirmed by the instructor closer to the date of the course to allow for other factors, such as the weather, conditions etc. to be taken into account.
