Is this course for me?
Before you book onto a Mountain Leader assessment, make sure you have done the following:

Over the duration of the course candidates will be assessed on all aspects of the ML syllabus including a demonstration of the following:
This course assesses candidates on all aspects of the ML syllabus over 4 day.
Great assessor made the day relatively stress free making the assessment as painless as possible. Tollymore has been a great place to do the ML award. The facilities available to course participants are excellent and accommodation extremely comfortable. The assessment course is thorough and demanding ensuring that candidates are meeting the correct standard while still maintaining an informative and educational means of feedback. Instructors were approachable and really explained the way in which the assessment would proceed from the outset which really helped us candidates to relax (a bit!) as a lot of our queries and concerns about the way the assessment would proceed were answered at the start of the week. I would highly recommend Tollymore to all aspiring ML's.

For this Mountain Leader Award Assessment please bring any of your own personal hillwalking outdoor clothing and kit such as, waterproof jacket and trousers, boots, fleece jacket, hat and gloves, flask, water bottle, appropriate map, compass Silva type 4 or similar, camp kit (sleeping bag, stove, cookware, etc) and spare clothes. It’s best to bring plenty of lighter layers and avoid cotton if possible as it offers little heat and takes ages to dry out if wet or sweaty.
Tollymore can supply most of the equipment you require for this course but as an aspirant ML it is assumed you will be fairly self-sufficient in terms of kit.
Tollymore will supply all ropes for this course and helmets where required.
In-course transport and assessment.
Please note this course is based at the Centre until the morning of Day 2 when the group will depart for their expedition. Students must be self-sufficient in terms organising their own food once they depart the Centre for the expedition.
Course fee includes packed lunch and evening meal on Day 1, breakfast on day 2.
As you are probably aware the current advice from the Northern Ireland Executive, Health Promotion Agency NI and Health & Safety Executive NI, as well as our expert group within Sport NI is that we cannot deliver any face to face courses for our customers including use of the Hot Rock Climbing Wall.
We know that you and many others like minded folk are very keen to get back on track with your plans to attend and complete a range of personal skills training and qualifications in a range of disciplines.
Believe us when we say we are equally keen to get outside with you and help you reach your goals and complete that journey.
How do we know? Because every day we get emails and phone calls asking when will courses resume and with every NI Executive mention of easing of restrictions the emails and phone calls are more frequent……
