Training Program

General Policy

All trainees of AMCI (the AMCI Mountaineering Club, Inc.) are required to successfully complete the Club's BASIC MOUNTAINEERING COURSE before they can be considered for membership. They can then begin to enjoy all the rights and privileges of an Ayala Mountaineer* (AMCI Mountaineer?).

All trainees will be treated with due respect. The club is genuinely delighted to have new trainees and aims to make their training enjoyable without necessarily sacrificing the high quality of the training program.
