The Hill & Moorland Leader Award Course is for leaders of walking groups in summer conditions in non-mountainous hilly terrain, known variously as upland, moor, bog, hill, fell or down. Such areas are often subject to harsh weather conditions, requiring an element of self-sufficiency and this scheme will help you develop the necessary skills and experience.
The UK Mountain Training Board has, over the years, developed an excellent range of training and assessment courses aimed at people (18 years and over) who aspire to become leaders or instructors.
