Mountain Training England's Mission

Mountain Training England aims to inspire, enable and develop people in walking, climbing and mountaineering through the provision of nationally and internationally recognised skills training and leadership qualifications.


Strategic Plan 2021-25

Mountain Training England's Strategic Development Plan 2021-25 outlines our vision, mission and values:

Mountain Training

Mountain Training is the collective term used to describe all of the national training organisations of the UK and Ireland.

Each national training organisation is responsible for managing skills and award schemes along with the course providers assigned to them. Generally the procedures for providers and course directors are equal between each of the national training organisations, however slight differences may be required to accommodate regional differences and organisational structures.
