New Members Programme
IMC members who would like to be introduced to various aspects of climbing and mountaineering can take part in the annual New Members Programme, organised by our Training Officer. While we call this the New Members Programme, any members who would like to refresh or revive their skills are welcome. The key is that you are a member.
After the Mountaineering Ireland component of our membership fee, the remainder that comes to the club is a small amount when compared to formal Introduction to Rock Climbing courses from professional providers. The only way we can maintain this very low cost is by the generosity of our experienced members who volunteer their time to introduce course participants to traditional rock climbing skills.
Full details of the new members’ programme
If you would like formal training in mountaineering and rock-climbing please contact a commercial training provider – a list is available on the Mountaineering Ireland website mountaineering.ie
We help our members improve and update their skills by organising training activities throughout the year in response to expressions of interest among our members. The activities can be entirely in-house, provided by our more experienced members, or we can organise sessions with external professionals who have particular expertise.
