Instruction is generally voluntary, course fees practically cover related expenses (instruction materials, equipment, room rental, etc.).

MFPI MTB has already conceptualized an instructor certification program and will be posted soon.

EduCom is also organizing specialized/advance courses for those who have already taken the BMC. These courses which we are organizing this year, are sourced out to the experts in the respective field:

Sport Climbing – SCAPI
Rock Climbing – PAPCI
First Aid – Philippine National Red Cross
Jungle Survival – JEST Subic
GPS Mapping and Navigation – NAMRIA
Mountain Eco-System – MCME UP Los Banos / Siliman University

Other courses are: camp cooking, light packing, orienteering, outdoor photography.

There’s a lot more on the drawing board, we actually would like to request people to volunteer for EduCom.
