I am a member of the Association of Mountaineering InstructorsTechnical Advising


I have studied, and passed, the Royal Geographic Society Offsite Safety Course in June 2022 which trains people in processes of legal thinking when developing safety plans when off your normal site. This could be for School trips or for Cadet Organisations, Colleges, Universities, Youth Groups etc. This would ensure that you are within the legal parameters required when planning the events.

Cost of Consultancy is discussed on application. Please contact me and we can sort out how you would prefer to undertake this process.

Association of Mountaineering Instructors

Extract taken from the MTUK webpage for ‘Technical Advice and Advisors’

‘Many AMI full members are qualified and experienced to be Technical Advisors in mountaineering, rock climbing and other related activities as defined by the Adventure Activity Licensing Regulations. Organisations running climbing walls, high ropes courses or other climbing related activities also employ advisors to ensure that the best possible standards of practice are being met.

This Register is primarily for those in the outdoor/adventurous activity sector who are seeking technical advice relating to mountaineering, hill walking, abseiling, indoor and outdoor climbing, outdoor pursuits and related activities. The persons on the list are AMI members and therefore hold the MCI or WMCI qualification. In addition they have undertaken further training in the work of a technical advisor, have submitted up to date CPD records and listed a significant amount of experience in the activity areas that they can advise on.

The people on the Register have a wide range of experience and expertise. Consequently, the information given below can only act as an approximate guide in choosing them as a source of technical advice. If you feel a person on the Register has the relevant expertise you will need to contact them to ascertain whether they have precisely the expertise you require. AMI cannot endorse any persons on the list and it is important to note that any contract of work is between yourselves as the employer and the person that you engage’.

I am on the Register and I can act as Technical Advisor for your business. I currently TA for Outdoor Centres, Norfolk County Council Centres, Climbing Walls and Trekking Businesses.

I have taught Law at College and am very comfortable around Legislation and interpreting it for common use within the industry.

The cost for this service is negotiable but is kept to a minimum for your business, of course.
