E-learning top-ups


We currently have five e-learning modules available, with more under development. All of the modules are designed to complement one or more of the Mountain Training schemes and we think they're a great way to supplement your learning and development, regardless of what stage you're at.

One of these modules (Geology) has been designed by us, the Mountain Training Association and is exclusive to MTA members. Some of these modules have been allocated a CPD numerical value, so once you've completed them you can also gain CPD points to add to your online record.

They are designed to develop your understanding of mountain formation, rock types and mountain destruction.
