August 2020 (dates TBC)
This 2 week module is for those who want to complete the Mountain Leader Award to be able to safely lead groups in the hills and includes a week of revision of techniques. Based at the Abernethy School of Adventure Leadership on the shores of Loch Linnhe and a stone's throw from Ben Nevis and the Glencoe mountains there is no better location for some quality outdoor adventures!
The module will go over aspects of the assessment including micro nav, night nav, security on steep ground and river crossings. Week two will consist of the ML assessment which includes a two night expedition and will assess all that is required to be able to operate safely in the hlls.
Ideally for your own comfort and convenience you will have full waterproofs, a ruck sack, walking boots, first aid kit and a map case and compass. We can, however, provide all these and all other equipment required as part of the cost of the module.
The fee for this 2 week module is £920 all inclusive:
Our experienced, qualified instructional team will deliver coaching to give you enough experience to take part in the assessment course listed above.
A typical day will start with breakfast followed by a short daily meeting. A full day of coaching or un-coached practice time will follow with a review of the day and dinner on return to the centre. During an NGB course, there may be evening input from the visiting coach.
Weekends are free time but it is expected that module participants will spend the time refining skills and taking some rest!
Please contact us for any additional dates of training and assesments.
