Membership communications

MTA e-newsletters are part of MTA membership services that members pay for and sign up to when they join MTA. All members will always receive these updates as they are considered to be about core association business and are designed to provide information about upcoming CPD workshops, regional events, gear deals and alerts from Mountain Training and its leadership schemes that members may find useful.

There may be occasions when MTA would like to send members something marketing related email, but this is very rare. If members did not update their preferences before 25th May 2018, in accordance with the 2018 GDPR guidelines, they will have been automatically unsubscribed from these marketing emails, but they will still receive the ‘business as usual’ e-newsletters as these are considered a benefit of MTA membership. If members would like to receive marketing email from MTA they can opt in by logging into their Mountain Training account and updating your email preferences in your Account Settings.

If you have any issues, please contact the Mountain Training office on 01690 720272 or association@mountain-training.org and a members of staff can talk you through the process.

Full member commitment to CPD

Continued personal development (CPD) is the means by which members maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge and skills and develop the personal qualities required when using their awards. The Mountain Training Association encourages good practice and supports members in being professional in their approach and believes that the CPD process is vital for all members, whether working full time in the outdoors or using the awards in a voluntary capacity.

Full members commit to gaining two CPD points, which roughly equates to two days, in a five year period.

The CPD policy can be downloaded from the MTA Members Area.
