CMC Pensarn Harbour is offering capable people wanting to pursue a career in Outdoor Education an opportunity to gain many of the prerequisite personal skill awards in an intensive 8 week training programme. As a centre recognised by the MLTE, BCU/WCA, RYA and AALA we have over 42 years’ experience working in the outdoors.

Trained and coached by our highly qualified and experienced team you will develop your personal skills to a high standard extremely quickly. Our instructional staff are full time employed in the outdoors and their experience will not only guide you through our training programme but provide you with a "what to do next" action plan. This course is designed to prepare you for the coaching awards provided by the National Governing Bodies.

CMC is sited in Harbour Buildings with direct access to the water. We are only 10 minutes from the beach and open sea. The river estuary that we are on the banks of is grade 2 – 4 giving us access to moving water in the winter. A few minutes’ drive from the Rhinog mountains and the crags of the Moelwyns and Tremadog you couldn't be better placed for this type of course.
