About the event

A Hill Skills course is your key to getting started in countryside and moorland walking. No previous hill walking experience is required 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 a Hill Skills course is an ideal way to learn.

Each Hill Courses includes: 

A copy of the Safety on Mountains book 

A navigational timing card 

A certificate of attendance for completing each course 

Lifetime use of Mountain Trainings digital logbook (DLOG) for recording your mountain walking 

You'll also get access to a 15% Discount code to Cotswold Outdoors and Snow and Rock which are sponsors of the Mountain Training Skills Awards
