Hill and Mountain Skills

The Mountain Training Hill and Mountain Skills Scheme offers a practical introduction to the skills required to get started in hill walking and mountain walking. The courses 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.


Hill Skills
The Hill Skills course is your key to getting started in countryside and moorland walking. There is no experience of hill walking 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. 

Course duration: 2 days
Minimum age: 14 years
Cost: £100 (under 18s £75)

Registration cost includes:

•Access to the Mountain Training Digital Logbook 
•A copy of the 'Safety on Mountains' handbook 
•Certificate of attendance for both courses
