Find an instructor

How to use the 'find an instructor'

AMI is the representative Association for qualified Mountaineering Instructors. All of our Members are independent, and either run their own businesses or work for larger organisations. We list them here so you can find them easily and see what they have to offer.

Depending on the nature of the course or activity you should expect to pay upwards of £200 per day for the services of a Mountaineering Instructor. Remote areas, winter conditions, long routes and specialist experience are just some of the factors that may justify a higher daily rate.

Ratios vary greatly depending on the grade or nature of the terrain but an instructor/client ratio of 1:1 or 1:2 is typical for rock climbing, winter climbing and scrambling in mountainous environments. In some circumstances a higher ratio is possible, such as a larger group size at a lower and less remote venue. Maximum ratios for these days are determined by the instructor.

Select your instructor and contact them directly to make your enquiries.

Climbing and the outdoors are a lifestyle choice for me and I love to share my knowledge and experience with others.I can offer coaching and instruction anywhere in the North Wales area and further afield given sufficient notice. I love both traditional and sport climbing and have climbed up to E7 and F8a. I also enjoy Alpine climbing- highlights include the Italian Ridge of the Matterhorn and the South East Ridge of the Zinalrothorn.

Hi my name is Connor Holdsworth I am the company founder of Atlas Mountaineering. I was born in Bradford although I have spent a great deal of my adult life in Scotland. Since a young age I have always been outdoors walking and climbing it only seemed natural after I graduated from university that I would do this full time. I love helping people experience what the UK has to offer whether it is trying climbing for the first time or taking a group to the summit of Ben Nevis. It is such a beautiful place to live and work and I would not trade what I do for the world. Outside of work I am a keen climber and love going on big adventures recently I have spent time in Morocco in the High Atlas mountains (hence the company name) and the Italian Dolomite climbing and trekking.

Sam Percival started mountain biking in the UK with his friends after school way back in 1997. Before long evenings and weekends were full of mud sweat gears and grins. His love and respect of the hills has defined him since then and driven him to explore different ways to interact with the natural world around him. Always with an element of risk usually with an element of speed. He has at one time or another explored the uk whilst mountain biking caving canoeing motor-biking summer and winter mountaineering hill walking scuba diving wild swimming skydiving and much more. He discovered climbing in 2009 and it has become a defining sport for him particularly in the British traditional style in which he has lead at E4 6b grade. He has worked as an outdoor instructor for over 10 years and has introduced uncountable numbers of people to the outdoors. He loves teaching and has gained a long list of recognised qualifications.He can be usually be found near a crag with scraped knees his hound Spark by his heels and a cup of coffee in his hand.Outdoor related qualifications;Mountaineering Instructor AwardL3 Diploma in Adult education and teachingFirst aid instructorMountain LeaderSingle pitch climbing instructorClimbing wall instructorAbseil instructorLead climbing instructorLevel 1 kayak coachLevel 2 canoe coach3* paddling award holderL1 cave and mine leader trainedMountain bike leaderArchery society archery coach PPE inspector competent person certifiedAccess and rescue competent person certifiedB licence skydiving holder

I have had a passion for the outdoors as long as I can remember. My desire to develop my passion into a career started in 2010 when I started training as an instructor.While climbing has brought me to many locations including Wales Scotland France Thailand Tanzania and the USA. It is in Ireland where I ve enjoyed my favourite days out on rock and hill.From hiking in Connemara to scrambling up Howling Ridge trad climbing at Ailladie or bouldering in Doolin I find Ireland has everything to offer the hill walker and climber.

Making the most of your own back garden has always appealed to me. As our back garden in Berkshire was flat and devoid of rock I had to move. I now live on the edge of the Lake District and the North Yorkshire Dales so have a brilliant back garden in which to play and theres never a bad time of year be it cragging climbing mountain routes hill walking mountain biking running canoeing and even caving.

I am a keen hill walker mountaineer and climber. I m extremely active in all three of these sports and have accumulated a wealth of experience stretching back to my first notable adventure in to the mountains in 1992 (Austrian Alps). In pursuit of these activities I have travelled throughout Britain as well as further a field in places such as the Alps the Andes South-East Asia North and East Africa.

My passion for mountains & expeditions started in 2005 spending over 2 months living deep in the remote jungles of Belize.In the past 12 years I have organised guided & summited mountains on over 80+ expeditions all over the world as well as gaining qualifications & working freelance/self-employed across the UK in both Summer & Winter. Living in North Wales I live a non stop life of outdoor instructing/guiding/teaching & expedition guiding work. During the year I enjoy work as an MIA & WML in North Wales & Scotland & spread throughout the year I lead expeditions to all corners of the world through my company Mountain Expeditions. Whilst I have a deep love for dry rock & esoteric summer adventures winter conditions are where I truly feel at home whether in Scotland the Alps or at extreme high altitudes & on both foot & ski. Winter climbing & skiing are my main passions & I hope to develop my skills in this area or order to become and MIC and potentially IFMGA over the coming years. Highlights: In spring 2017 & 2018 I guide on the North and South of Everest respectively with successful summits for my clients. In 2017 I completed the worlds coldest and hardest ultra race – The Yukon Arctic Ultra. My friend and I became the first team ever to complete the 430 mile race on foot. In 2018 I organised and guided a world record breaking speed round of the famous 7 Summits smashing the record by 9 days. I have accumulated vast amounts of high altitude experience but my drive for harder more technical climbs is rapidly growing hence my desire to do the MIC & IFMGA.Everest 8848m x3Lhoste 8516mNuptse 7861mPeak Communism 7495mPeak Pobeda 7439mKhan Tengri 7010mPeak Lenin 7134m x3Peak Korjenevskaya 7110mAma Dablam 6812m x8Aconcagua 6962m x2Denali 6218m x2Island Peak 6189m x7Kyajo Ri 6186mLouche East 6168m x2Kangchung 6069mCotopaxi 5897mKilimanjaro 5895m x25 Elbrus 5642m x14Carstenz Pyramidm 4884 Mont Blanc 4810m Mt Meru 4484m Toubkal 4134m x5

Ive walked extensively in the Scottish hills for many years. This soon progressed to more technical summits with scrambling and rock climbing. I also enjoy winter climbing and mountaineering. I relocated to Fort William the UKs Outdoor Capital to make the most of all this fantastic area has to offer. I hold the Winter Mountaineering amd Climbing Instructor (WMCI).

See you in the hills!

I live and work in Fort William in the Highlands of Scotland - at the foot of Ben Nevis! Having grown up in Germany I initially moved to Scotland to study in 2008 fell in love with the country and stayed. As one of only a few females in the UK to hold the WMCI what I enjoy most is to take people out into the mountains and help them develop their skills to become independent mountaineers and climbers - in summer or winter. I love working with people - young and old(er) - and help them develop in whatever possible. Please get in touch via email (lenabrune@hotmail.com) if you would like me to help you with your goals.

I live in the Lake District and love teaching coaching and guiding climbing and mountaineering. Whether its long days in the mountains pulling hard on limestone sport crags or doing funky moves on a boulder...Im pretty happy when Im climbing. Its a sport with something for everyone. I can explore new places meet new people push myself physically and mentally and enjoy an activity which is inclusive and inspiring no matter who you are. I aim to still be in the hills and pulling myself up rock climbs when Im 80!?I have lived in Yorkshire the Peak District and Scotland before returning to Cumbria. I started climbing as a teenager  first competing indoors and then learning to explore outdoor climbing and mountaineering all over the UK and abroad. ?I studied for a degree in Outdoor Studies and since then have gained many years working in the outdoor industry with a wide variety of clients activites and locations. I am experienced in youth development work and also currently study part time for a masters degree in Environmental Education. ?I always continue to pursue my own passion for the outdoors in my personal time particularly in rock climbing. I enjoy being outdoors regardless of the grade but some specific highlights have been trad climbing up to E6 sport climbing up to 8a and bouldering V11.I really enjoy teaching and coaching others to develop skills for themselves no matter what level theyre at and love sharing my passion with other people.

I currently work in the capacity as a Director of a small business - Acclimbatize Adventure Activities based near Matlock in the southern Peak District.Prior to setting up Acclimbatize I held positions at Whitehall Centre in Buxton Dukes Barn Centre in Beeley and also with the Derbyshire Youth Service where I established a successful outdoor activity provision for young people in the local area.Additionally I have worked overseas in the capacity as a leader for a British Expedition company as a destination manager for a British Ski tour operator and briefly as an associate lecturer at Derby University.A genuine passion for being outdoors fortunately delivered me to a career pathway that I still feel privileged to be active in. It is a genuine honour to be in a position to impart practical knowledge and experience based wisdom on to candidates embarking on their own journeys. My approach to training and delivery is person focussed - this is achieved by complimenting your existing skill set with some appropriate new ones. My style is quiet but certain practical and efficient.
