AMI & MTA Workshops

AMI CPD Workshops

Workshop title:

How to meet clients and choose what to do.

Open to:

Aimed at trainee MCI but available to all members wishing to refresh skills.


Thursday 22nd April 2021



Workshop outline:

How to meet clients and choose what to do.

Every day as working a Mountain Instructor we meet clients and have to quickly work out what is the best plan for the day.

This is one of the key areas assessed during a Mountaineering & Climbing Instructor assessment.

This workshop will look at the decision making used in developing a plan for the day.

Aims of the day:

  • Who are the clients
  • Designing a plan
  • Choosing a venue
  • Implementing (some nuts and bolts)
  • Reviewing and adaptability (being flexible)
  • Practical session trying something out.

We will probably spend a good amount of time working through decision making then go on the crag to try out a few ideas, putting into practice some of the plans to see how they play out.

The main focus of this workshop is the super important stage of planning and the process of coming up with a great structure for the day.

AMI CPD Workshops

Workshop title:

Working Langdale as Mountain Instructor

Open to:

All AMI members.

Workshop dates:

Mon 19th April.  Workshop FULL

Saturday 24th April

Workshop Cost:

£20 max 10 places

Workshop outline:

Langdale is a great valley for working in. It not only gives us many options for working with clients it also represents many other valleys both in Wales and Scotland and so as part of an AMI workshop the skills discussed and applied on this workshop can easily be applied to other venues.

We’ll discuss the many crags and mountains within Langdale, sharing insight into the best link-ups and routes that make for brilliant days out.

There are so many crags and ridges and ground to suit virtually any delivery requirement. We use Langdale for everything from family fun days, Mountain Leader/Rock Climbing Instructor training days to guiding high on the mountain crags.

Of course, we won’t be able to get to all the venues but we can discuss many of the crags, routes, descent routes, abseil options.

Aims of the day:

  • Become familiar with this amazing valley
  • Venue choice
  • Instructional delivery choice
  • Structuring a day/journey to use suit the clients, timing.
  • Linking crags and managing clients.

There are so many topics that we could cover in a day like this but we will endeavour to chat in the morning and tailor the day to suit the level of participants.

My aim through this day is for us to get our brains fired up again, and be as open as possible for each of our gaining knowledge.

As part of the workshop fee, I will collate lessons learned and email to the attendees as much of the info gathered in a useful resource for future use.

Any trainees wanting to share lesson plans for future clients please feel free to chat with me after the course to develop your skills.

Choosing what to do with clients and where to go can make or break your day. I think this workshop will really open our eyes to the opportunities available in Langdale.
