A five (5) day assessment - including a two night expedition - to measure your competency against the Mountain Leader syllabus, run in a relaxed style to help you perform and achieve. On successful completion of the assessment, you’ll be qualified to lead groups in the mountains, hills and moorlands of the UK and Ireland.

As approved Mountain Training providers with a proven track record, we know how to set you up for success. Led by experienced trainers, you’ll be part of small groups of just four (4) people. This 1:4 ratio allows us to personalise your experience and give you the best chance of successfully completing your assessment.

 

Cannot recommend RAW Adventures enough. Kate looked after us from the outset every step of the way right up to the summit even in the poor weather conditions we had. Extraordinarily knowledgeable of every facet of the mountain and absolute pros through and through.
