Saturday, 18 February 2012
Jane has successfully passed her IML winter assessment in The French Alps. Sierra Nevada Guides now have 3 fully qualified International Mountain Leaders based in Lanjaron and working in Spain's Sierra Nevada Mountains. The IML is a recognised qualification in Europe (including Spain) and allows you to take parties into the mountains world wide. To become an International Mountain Leader (IML) you must first be a British ML. With enough overseas experience you can apply to register onto the IML training scheme. There are both summer and winter training courses followed by summer and winter assessments. Once qualified you have to keep up to date if you want to maintain your "carnet" to operate. Additionally an IML must have appropriate insurance and be qualified in remote or wilderness 1st aid.
