- just registered for a Mountain Training award?

The Mountain Training Association
provides continued support and development opportunities for Mountain Training candidates who have registered for an award scheme
and provides a link between you the candidate and Mountain Training for the rest of your outdoor career. Members are either working towards a Mountain Training award or already hold qualifications and are actively working in the outdoors, so when you join you can be at any stage in your qualification journey; just registered, completed a training course or using your award/s for outdoor work.
Members come from a wide variety of backgrounds; some work full time in the outdoors as freelance professionals or run their own business, others work in full time education, outdoor centres or climbing walls as managers or staff. Many are involved in DofE and volunteer with schools, Girl Guides and Scouts and some seek the qualifications for personal competence.
If you have registered for any of the following awards you are eligible to become a member of the association:
Many higher award holders
also choose to join the Mountain Training Association in addition to being members of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI)
, British Association of International Mountain Leaders (BAIML)
and/or British Mountain Guides (BMG)
We hope candidates who register for the Hill & Mountain skills scheme
will in the future choose to undergo an award scheme, at which point they will become eligible to join the Mountain Training Association.
If you are a paid up member of the association your membership status will show in the membership tab
in your online Mountain Training account
and you will also have access to the members area
via the Membership Tools tab in your account. Alternatively, you can access the MEMBERS AREA here.
The cost of membership is great value at just £34 per year
