This qualification trains and assesses candidates in the skills required to lead hillwalking groups in summer conditions on mountainous routes not requiring the planned use of a rope. Established in 1964, this was the first qualification created by Mountain Training.
This course will take place in Eastern Snowdonia and the Peak District, however the course venue may have to change in line with Covid restrictions and whether trainees can access local accomodation. A whatsapp group will be set up for the course and venues and timings will be adapted to the needs of the group. The course provider can help with most accomodation enquiries.
The course will be delivered in a friendly, helpful & purposeful style. The emphasis will be on the core areas of the syllabus including; Navigation, Navigation in Poor visibility, Leadership and group management, Use of steep ground and solving problems on steep ground, and Expedition skills.
