Does someone you know enjoy hillwalking? If so then perhaps a voucher for a free place on one of our Mountain Skills Training courses would be a good present for them this Christmas? We run these courses regularly during the year.
Mountain Skills 1 is the foundation training to enable walkers make their way reliably in open countryside and on our hills. It includes map reading and navigation techniques as well as personal equipment, and some aspects of the upland environment.
These courses are accredited by the Mountain Training Board of Ireland (the new all Ireland mountain training body) and is usually delivered through two days tuition in an upland environment. Our team are qualified Mountain Leaders, holding appropriate outdoor first aid certification. Instruction groups are a maximum of 6 participants to each instructor, enabling us to facilitate maximum learning for each participant.
We usually run these courses from our location at Glendalough, we can also provide one closer to where you live if you have a group interested.
