Mountaineering Qualifications & the Public

Posted by Jon Garside on 03/08/2010
Sunny Scotland and smiles all round

With a range of hill walking, climbing and mountaineering qualifications available, providing the public with a clear message about them is vitally important.

This week at Glenmore Lodge representatives from both the awarding bodies and representative associations met to discuss ways in which they can all work together as effectively as possible.

This is not to imply that collaborative working is new to those who met. Rather, that working closely together will hopefully ensure that the public is presented with clear and unambiguous information about both the awards and the associations.

Full details about their meeting are available on the Mountain Leader Training website
