2019 Training Courses MapReading

Training Courses such as Mountain Skills 1 & 2, Navigation, Map Reading etc. are available through the Walking Club.

These Courses are generally run over weekends with a preferred ratio of 1 Instructor to 6 Participants. Cost of Mountain Skills 1 is €130 and Mountain Skills 2 is €130 for a weekend.

The Walking Club will refund 50% of fees to participants on completion of each Course. If interested, you can contact Mark Britton at (086) 1967141 for further details.

To date Ballyhoura Development have assisted us with grant aid for our training courses.

We really appreciate this assistance but they have advised that the present grant scheme will finish at the end of Spring 2014. This means in effect that we must run the training courses and apply for the grants before that point.

Examples of courses we could organise relate to

• First Aid
• Mountain Skills 1 and 2
• Lowland Leader Award
• Walking Group Leader Award
• Other eg Radios

More detail of the Mountain Skills, Lowland Leader Award and Walking Group Leader Award are available at the Mountaineering Ireland Site
