Hill course details

Next course = 22+23 May 2017, 15+16 June 2017

Our hill skills courses normally take place in Snowdonia, North Wales.

Walking in the hills can give us opportunities that we treasure for many years but these are even better when we can enjoy them safely. Our two day, Mountain Training accredited hill skills course is designed to ensure you get as much time as possible outside whilst learning and practising the necessary skills. Included in the course fee is registration with Mountain Training, a skills handbook and certificate after attendance on the two days.

The course is aimed at beginners or those with limited knowledge of walking independently in the hills of the UK. Maybe you are a regular walker but aren’t completely confident about planning, navigating and understanding other factors which affect us when we walk in the hills. The emphasis is very much on the practical side and the day will be structured to give you ample time to practise and consolidate your new found knowledge. Our aim is to give you confidence to venture out onto the hills independentely.

A typical 2 day hills skills course will consist of the following:

  1. Meet and greet 9am
  2. Discuss the factors which affect planning a walk
  3. Weather and it’s affect on hill walkers
  4. Clothing and equipment
  5. Navigation including maps and modern technology
  6. Access and conservation
  7. First aid and emergency procedures
  8. A journey into local hills and terrain whilst discussing and implementing the course topics
  9. Debrief and feedback
  10. Course aims to finish around 5.30pm each day

All our instructors are local, fully qualified for the course they are responsible for, fully insured and qualified first aiders.
