Welcome to Bryn Williams Mountaineering

My clients are at the heart of all that I do.

I aim to inspire people, develop their skills, knowledge and judgements in the many different aspects of mountaineering.

Mountain Training Qualifications

Bryn Williams Mountaineering is an approved provider by Mountain Training (Cymru) for the delivery of several nationally recognised qualification courses.

Continuing Professional Development

The Mountain Training qualifications are for life and as time goes on you might find yourself with a skills or knowledge deficit. In a dynamic environment like this, you can't afford to be complacent. I run a variety of workshop based CPD sessions which help draw together good practice techniques and sharing of ideas which helps instructors and leaders maintaining a solid level of understanding.

The refresher workshops is ideal for people who already hold a qualification and may have done so for some time and now want to top-up their skill set and knowledge.


The consolidation workshops are focussed towards people who are getting ready for an assessment course and want to focus on ensuring they are ready.


Mentoring is a longer-term involvement where the client has a future goal (usually to complete a particular qualification) and wants the support on an ongoing basis.
