Mountain Skills & Leadership Training Packages

I have designed three training packages, specifically for walking clubs; both for people looking to become a little more self-sufficient in the mountains and also for people looking to take on more of a leadership role within a club.

My courses cover Navigation, Steep Ground Skills, Emergency Procedures, Environmental Skills, Rope Skills and Leadership Skills. Some of the courses are nationally recognised official courses and some can be designed specifically for your requirements.
