I am a provider of qualifications for both the Irish and UK Mountain Training Boards.

For BOS (Irish Training Board) I offer climbing instruction qualifications.  Any process of qualification in the climbing industry starts with a training course (introduction to new ideas and an opportunity to learn what you don’t know) and an assessment course (the time to demonstrate what you now know).

I offer both training and assessment for:

  • Climbing Wall Award (CWA)
  • Single Pitch Award (SPA)
  • Climbing Wall Leading Award (CWLA)

For course dates and prices keep an eye on my Facebook page and the Mountaineering Ireland website: www.mountaineering.ie/training

I also run Fundamentals 1&2 for Mountaineering Ireland at most large climbing walls in Ireland. Keep an eye out on the MI website for dates and prices, www.mountaineering.ie/training

For Mountain Training UK, I am the only provider not on the mainland UK to offer the climbing coaching awards. These awards were introduced in 2013 and on the back of the indoor climbing wall boom.  Historically climbing has been about instructing and tying knots building belays etc., but people now want to be better at climbing itself, hence the need for coaching awards.  So far over 1300 people have registered for the awards and it has been highly successful with its popularity only growing.  I offer the following:
