The Mountain Men Training Courses

Our courses will continue under the name of The Mountain Men and for 2021/22 we will run two different courses.

The Hill Navigation and Safety Course is a 6hr course during which we will touch on how to deal with casualties (not first aid), emergency shelters and kit to carry when walking the hills. We will also teach you map reading and how to navigate using a map and a compass, the effective way.

​​Our 2nd course is more for the advanced navigator and covers winter navigation, you will be a confident navigator in standard conditions and ready to take the next step, the skills you have learned on the HNSC will stand you in good stead for this course but be warned the hills can look very different in full winter conditions.
