At Mountain Sense we understand the pressure that ML candidates can feel under assessment conditions. We aim to create a relaxed and open setting throughout the week to allow candidates every opportunity to demonstrate their abilities. We place a big emphasis on developing existing skills throughout the week. We feel candidates can learn just as much during the course as they did during ML Training.

Before you book onto a Mountain Leader assessment, make sure you have done the following:

  • You must have attended a Mountain Leader training course (or have been granted exemption)
  • You must be familiar with the syllabus
  • You must have logged a minimum of 40 Quality Mountain Days in three different regions of the UK and Ireland
  • You must have logged at least 8 nights camping, including at least 4 nights wild camping
  • You must have physically attended and completed (i.e. not online) a first aid course which involved at least two full days or sixteen hours of instruction and included an element of assessment

The Mountain Leader assessment is 5 days long and includes a two night expedition.

The full course fee includes full English breakfast, packed lunch, dinner and accommodation at the course venue.

If you would like an informal chat about any aspects of the course before booking, please give us a call on 01768 780312.

Mountain Sense also run 2 Day Outdoor First Aid Courses throughout the year for those needing a First Aid Qualification.
