Mountain Leader Summer Assessment

Mountain Leader Summer Assessment

The five day Mountain Leader Summer Assessment aims to assess the technical skills, judgements and areas of knowledge deemed necessary to ensure an individual is safe to lead groups around the mountains of the UK in summer conditions.

The purpose of the assessment is to make certain that all candidates for the Award have a sound understanding of both the environment in which they will operate and managing groups in general. The intention is to create an atmosphere whereby candidates can show their best in terms of personal abilities, knowledge and supervising skills.
