BAIML represents the UK at UIMLA, the Union of International Mountain Leader Associations, which is the international governing body for International Mountain Leaders. BAIML works closely with UIMLA to develop and promote a worldwide standard for training and assessment.BAIML at home
In Britain, BAIML represents over 400 members who either hold the full IML carnet or are working towards it, and the number continues to grow each year. It has its place along side the other professional mountaineering associations and governing bodies in the UK, British Mountain Guides (BMG)
, Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI)
, the British Mountaineering Council (BMC)
, Mountain Training UK (MTUK)
Like all professional bodies we expect our members to undertake continuing professional development (CPD) and meet our high standards of personal and professional behaviour. To be full members, and issued with the prestigious UIMLA carnet, members should have suitable insurance and first aid qualifications appropriate to the environments where they choose to work. Register of members
BAIML maintains a register of members. This can be used to find a qualified leader or check the credentials of anyone offering services as an IML.
