Team Member Training

For Scottish MR, by Scottish MR

Within Scottish Mountain Rescue we deliver a variety of courses tailored specifically to rescue.  We believe that the expert knowledge required for the unique challenge of rescuing on Scottish mountains is within Scottish Mountain Rescue itself.  We look outside our organisation to confirm good practice by inviting external experts to our courses and engaging in international exchanges.

Our courses are designed by small technical sub groups, delivered by a wide variety of team members and shaped through feedback by course participants: the courses are a product of Scottish Mountain Rescue.  We ensure that the information delivered on our courses is supported by the good governance of broad research and knowledge.

Access by other Mountain Rescue Teams

Our courses are primarily available to team members within Scottish Mountain Rescue Teams that are affiliated to SMR.  Each course has the potential to offer a small number of places to Mountain Rescue Teams outside of Scotland.  Course cost for any team not affiliated to SMR and from outside Scotland is available on request.

The insurances we provide only covers members of teams that are affiliated to Scottish Mountain Rescue. If you are not a member of a SMR affiliated team we will ask to see evidence of insurance appropriate to the course you wish to attend.
