Become a Skills Provider


Page under construction May 2022


Both the Hill & Mountain Skills and Rock Skills schemes follow the same philosophy offering quality training experiences, open to all, with no assessment element. Although participants attend for a variety of reasons the emphasis is on introducing skills in a progressive manner to ensure the safe enjoyment of the activity.
All of our courses are offered by a network of approved providers.
A provider can be an individual or an organisation and with each course offering will need to appoint an approved tutor or course director to run the actual course. All providers are managed by their national Mountain Training organisation (Mountain Training Cymru, Mountain Training England, Mountain Training Scotland, Mountain Training Board Ireland, Mountain Training UK & Ireland).

What can we offer your groups?

  • Certificates and a registration pack for every participant.
  • Access to a Mountain Training digital account including learning resources, a digital logbook to record their adventures and an official record of their course.

  • The first step on a pathway to independence or even a career in the outdoors.

What can we offer you?

  • Access to a bank of resources and the Mountain Training team to support your course delivery.
  • You will be alligned with our established name, which is recognised and respected for thee quality of our schemes accross the UK outdoor sector.

How to become a Skills Provider

Provider applications are managed by each national Mountain Training organisation and typically applicants will apply to the nation where they reside or will be running the majority of their planned courses. Contact a technical officer from one of the Mountain Training organisations for further guidance. If you are based in England and would like to know more about the application process, information can be found here.

New providers are approved on a probationary basis and will be required to run a minimum number of courses during their first year.
