This is a fabulous ‘all round’ course to fully prepare you for spending time in the outdoors.  The course covers the following important areas of knowledge and skills:

▶ Planning – how to successfully plan a hill walk in the UK or Ireland.
▶ Weather – how it affects the hills and your day out.
▶ Clothing and equipment – being suitably dressed and equipped can make the difference between a great day out and a complete disaster.
▶ Walking skills – what things should you consider while out walking and what can make life easier (pace, nutrition, movement skills etc).
▶ Environmental knowledge – how to minimise your impact on the hill and information on good practice and useful organisations.
▶ Navigation on the hills – everything from selecting a compass to navigation strategies and an intro to GPS.
▶ Hazards and emergency procedure in the hills – how to respond to any hazards you encounter and what to do in an emergency.
