Meet your instructor and fellow candidates at our Peak District base. After a guided discussion on Weather, countryside access, clothing and Equipment we head out for a day of practical skills development on the hill, covering map reading, compass skills, hazard avoidance and emergency procedures. The day ends with a look at guidebooks and a route planning session for day 2 over tea and cake.
Complete a 5-6 hour planned walk, with regular stops at points of interest to learn about the upland landscape and how best to minimise our impact upon it. As well as honing skills picked up on day 1, you’ll have the opportunity to try navigation with GPS and smartphone Apps and consider their pros and cons. The course ends with a 1:1 review of your learning and suggestions for your continued development.
