AMI Trainer workshop
The Association of Mountaineering Instructors offer workshops for trainees who are progressing through their Mountain Instructors Award. The workshops run from April to October and cover topics such as short roping, teaching multi pitch climbing, personal climbing skills and improvised rescue techniques. To kick off the new season I and a number of AMI trainers got together for a meeting at Plas y Brenin today to discuss issues that have arisen from previous workshops and to discuss how the MIA scheme is delivered at the centre all the way through from registration to assessment. We were helped throughout the day by Carlo and Keith who did a great job in filling us in with how the MIA scheme is currently delivered and the problems that some trainee's encounter during training and assessment courses.
