FREE Training Opportunities

As part of a number of our assessment courses students are required to teach real people. That’s where you come in as a mock student.  The training and use of equipment is FREE all you have to do is cover any travel, food and accommodation costs.  Most of the courses are based from Glenmore Lodge, although our Sea and Surf courses are based away.

BC Mountain Bike Leader Award Level 3

You should be an enthusiastic mountain biker fit enough to ride 30km in a day on off-road tracks and trails. You should be able to ride red graded trails and keen to explore new trails. Ideally you should have your own kit but we may be able to help.


We run a large number of courses for which we require different levels of experience in different disciplines. Here on the website you will find a list of dates to give you an idea of when these courses take place however the application form does not have dates; instead we will look at your experience and only contact you if your experience matches a course that we would require you for.
