Day 1 Meet your instructor and fellow candidates for a short theory session before striking out from our mountain base for a 4-5 hour practical session. On the hill we cover navigation skills specific to the mountain environment, security on steep ground, hazard avoidance and relocation techniques for when mist or darkness falls. The day ends with a look at guidebooks and a planning session for day 2-3 over tea and cake.
Day 2 The Overnight Trip. Put your skills into practice on a mountain walk of 5-6 hours duration, en route we cover incident management and try out navigation using handheld GPS and smartphone apps. This is the expedition phase of the course and you will find a suitable spot to camp for the night before continuing your journey in the morning.
Day 3 Complete your overnight trip with a trek back to the start point. Tie up any loose ends and ensure the syllabus is complete for the course. The programme ends with a 1:1 review of your learning and suggestions for your continued development.
