Are you a BMC club member wanting to learn new skills? Come along to one of our safety training courses to learn about outdoor first aid or improvised rescue for climbers.

The BMC organises a series of training courses for BMC club members held at club huts and outdoor centres around the UK, and run by experienced and qualified instructors. The costs of the courses cover all instruction and overnight accommodation and are kept down due to a subsidy from BMC.

Each course is held over a weekend with accommodation on the Friday and Saturday night, instruction on both days and group equipment included in the cost.

BMC club training courses 2017-18

Ready to Rock outdoor climbing days are a great way to learn skills for climbing outside and at an affordable price.

Please note:

Places on clubs workshops are not guaranteed until payment has been received.

Cancellations within 14 days of the course starting will not be eligible for a refund.

Cancellations 15-28 days prior to the course starting will get a 50% refund.

Cancellations more than 28 days prior to the course starting get a full refund.

In case of cancellation we can sometimes transfer your booking to another course if you wish and there is space.

If the course is cancelled by the BMC a full refund will be offered or the option to transfer your booking on to another course, whichever you prefer.

These courses were originally set up in response to the BMC Club Surveys carried out in 2010 and 2013.  These surveys revealed that a majority of clubs felt that their members would benefit from training in specific areas, and to this end the Clubs Committee began to offer training to club members.  If there are courses that you feel would benefit members in your club please get in touch with Jane (details below).
