Armed Forces

Adventurous Training in the Armed Forces can lead to civilian qualifications which will stay with you for the rest of your life. There are some simple steps you need to follow in order to make this work, which is why we've designed the following infographic in association with the Joint Service Mountain Training Centre (JSMTC).

To help when logging your experience, please read the definition of a Quality Mountain Day. Days as a course member under instruction (for example on a training course, military exercise or in conflict), assisting a qualified leader, as a member of a group practising skills, or days spent repeating familiar routes are very unlikely to meet the requirements of a Quality Mountain Day.

If you think you are eligible to apply for exemption from training, check out the information on this page: Can I apply for exemption from training?
