International Mountain Leader

This qualification trains and assesses candidates in the skills required to lead parties in mountainous areas, including snow-covered Nordic type terrain of the “middle” mountains but excluding via ferratas, glaciers and terrain requiring alpine techniques. The IML builds on the Mountain Leader qualification, which candidates must hold. To operate professionally outside the UK, IML-holders must be a member of an association such as BAIML.
