As well as managing nationally recognised qualification schemes, Mountain Training also offer personal skills courses through a network of approved providers of the Hill & Mountain Skills scheme.

These courses are a practical introduction to the skills required to get started in hill walking and mountain walking and aim to equip participants with the basic knowledge and essential safety skills required to start pursuing their own participation in hill and mountain walking as a leisure time activity.

What you’ll learn

The Hill Skills course is aimed at the beginner hill walker and ideal for those interested in developing a practical understanding of how to plan walks, become familiar with the use of a map, learn about the equipment required and also gain an understanding of the effects of weather, how to deal with emergencies and gain a valuable understanding of the upland environment.

The course utilises countryside and moorland areas where the skills will be transferable to many popular walking areas of the UK and Ireland.
