Fast Track Instructor Programme

40 days instruction for £2500

23rd Nov – 18th Dec 2020 & 11th Jan – 5th Feb 2021

We are offering an intensive fast track instructor programme, so you can get the outdoor job you desire. You will receive 40 days of personal coaching and instruction as you work towards mountain and water based NGB awards and qualifications.

Arete Outdoor Centre is a thriving centre based in Snowdonia, North Wales. We are in the ideal position to make best use of the mountains, world class climbing crags, rivers and the stunning coastline of Anglesey. Nowhere else in the country offers such a diverse range of venues within a short drive. We work at low ratios so you receive a more personal experience.

2 day First Aid course, if needed, then choose to focus on land based or water based activities or a combination of both.

Land based course:
Mountain Leader (ML) training and assessment
Rock Climbing Instructor (RCI) training and assessment
Mine Leader level 1 training and assessment

Water based course:
British Canoeing (BC) core coach training
Canoe & kayak sheltered water coach training and assessment
Paddlesport leader training and assessment.
Personal Performance Awards in Canoe, White Water or Sea Kayak

General Activities as extra modules:
In house assessments for Gorge Scrambling and Coasteering

During the course you will have your own mentor to make sure we are tailoring the course for your needs. We have a range of passionate and experienced instructors who will be able to provide high level coaching and instruction. There will also be an opportunity to put you skills into action with real clients and groups if you wish, so gaining first hand experience. During your stay you will have full access to our stores, which has ample kit for all the activities that we offer.

The winter instructor training course runs for 40 days over 8 weeks at a course cost of £2500. We don't run any training over the Christmas and New Year weeks, when it is ideal to consolidate the skills you have learnt. You can choose to either concentrate on land based or water based qualifications. Alternatively we can provide a mix of training to build you towards all different assessments.

Self - Catered Accommodation: £70 Per Week
We can provide self catered accommodation for the duration of your stay with easy access to the mountains of Snowdonia and coastline of Anglesey. This would be in our new cottage Bryn Eryr.

Please contact Gareth on for more details if you wish to embark on this exciting journey to accelerate your learning in becoming a qualified instructor. We encourage centre visits so you can see first hand the opportunities available for developing your instructor skills in North Wales.
