There are two courses as part of the scheme so you can choose the most appropriate starting point: Hill Skills and Mountain Skills. Both are open to anyone aged 10 or over.
The Hill Skills course is your key to getting started in countryside walking. No previous hill walking experience is required to attend a Hill Skills course because the content of the course is aimed at beginners. If you do have some experience of hill walking but aren’t confident about planning walks, navigating and understanding the equipment required, then the Hill Skills course is an ideal way to learn.
The Mountain Skills course is an ideal choice for walkers interested in transferring their walking skills to steep, remote or more mountainous terrain. Ideally, participants will have some basic hill walking experience and have a reasonable level of fitness. Courses are run in the higher mountain areas of the UK and Ireland.
Skills courses are £125 per person for the two days and include:
A copy of the Safety on Mountains book
A navigational timing card
A certificate of attendance for completing either or both courses
Lifetime use of MT digital logbook (DLOG) for recording all mountain related activities
