CMS and Course Reporting

These guidelines outline how course providers, directors and tutors use Mountain Training's Candidate Management System (CMS). The information presented below aims to suppliment guidance given at induction and update workshops. Please note that 'participants' attend skills scheme courses and 'candidates' attend leadership award courses. In the context of the CMS system, we refer to all individuals as 'candidates'.



  • All courses must be created on CMS as soon as possible and at least 10 days in advance of the course start date.
  • Candidates and participants must be added as 'bookings' on courses as soon as possible to subsequently hit 'minimum numbers' 5 days before the course start date.
  • Directors or tutors are required to submit course reports via CMS to Mountain Training within 21 days of course completion.

Mountain Training understand exceptional circumstances can occur. In these cases a technical officer should be informed prior to the course start date. All communication should be recorded in 'Confidential Comments' on the course report form.
