Saturday I attended the last Mountain Training UK board meeting for 2012. I represent BMC Cymru Wales on the board. Its’ main role is to oversee mountain training and associated national qualifications within the UK.
Approx 20 + people attend these meetings with representation from the BAIML, British Mountain Guides, Association of Mountaineering Instructors, Mountain Training Scotland, Wales, England and Ireland, National Mountain Centres, BMC and MCofS.
Meetings may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but without boards and committees, many a good thing in the outdoors would either not get of the ground or be weaker as a result. The outdoor scene and industry is a wash with a whole host of volunteers.
If mountaineering bodies are new to you or you would like to find out more of their role and how they may be of use then click on the link.
If you hold a mountain, rock, climbing wall, walking award qualification or have attended a training course, have you enrolled on the new candidate management system. ? If not then follow this link, as it is the new way forward and very worthwhile. It does not cost either.
