Recently I spent nine days at Plas y Brenin in North Wales on the Mountain Instructor Award (MIA) training course. It’s a tough nine days covering personal climbing skills; how to teach rock-climbing; improvised problem solving and rescue skills; the mountain environment; scrambling, mountaineering, and short-roping; and teaching navigation to the ML standard.
Now I’ve just got 12 to 24 months of consolidation and practice to look forward to before I think about going on the five day assessment… 😯
