Whilst I recognise that qualifications are an important, if not essential part of my role as an Outdoor Educator/Instructor, I also keep up to date with a system of continual personal development over and above that required to maintain membership of my awarding professional body, the Association of Mountaineering Instructors. I also deliver CPD training to members of AMI.
