FAQs: BENEFITS

1/ I joined MTA as soon I registered onto a scheme, but I don't have the option to appear in the 'Find A Leader' search on your website. Why is this?

If you join MTA as soon as you register onto a scheme you will be a Trainee member, as you are in the training phase of your award and have not yet achieved an accreditation.

As soon as you pass an award, you will be granted FULL membership giving you access to additional benefits, including the ability to accumulate CPD points and feature in the ‘Find A Leader’ facility of the Mountain Training website. In the meantime, please enjoy the range of benefits that are still accessible to you as a Trainee, including gear deals and access to the MTA member-only Facebook group.

2/ How do I access the Members Area and view the gear deals/discounts that are available to me?

You can log into the members area via the sign in header at the very top of the Association website or log into your Mountain Training (CMS) account, click your username and select the Membership Tools option from the drop-down menu.
