Description

Mountain Skills 2 builds on the foundation skills covered on Mountain Skills 1. It covers using a compass along with the map, navigating at night and in poor visibility and moving safely over steep ground. This course is accredited by the Mountain Training Board of Ireland (the new all Ireland mountain training body) and is usually delivered through two days tuition in an upland environment.

Our team are qualified Mountain Leaders, holding appropriate outdoor first aid certification. Instruction groups are a maximum of 6 participants to each instructor, enabling us to facilitate maximum learning for each participant. Participants should have attended a Mountain Skills 1 course and have had some experience practicing the skills gained there before attending this course.

Price for tuition is €160 per participant. Participants must arrange to get to the venue and will need to bring adequate food and water for a day on the hill each day. There is a lot of learning packed into the two days and on Saturday we will need to be on the hill for a few hours after darkness falls to practice navigating in the dark.

FAQ

  • I have not received my ticket via email. What should I do?

    The first thing to do is check your spam/junk filters and inboxes. Your tickets were sent as an attachment and can be thought of as spam by some email services. Alternatively, you can always find your tickets in your Billetto account that you can access in the browsers or the dedicated Billetto app. For more help with this, read here.

  • I wish to cancel my ticket and receive a refund. What should I do?

    The approval of refunds is entirely at the event organiser’s discretion, and you should get in contact with the event organiser to discuss what options are available to you. To get in touch with the event organiser, simply reply to your order confirmation email or use the "Contact organiser" form on the organiser's profile. For more help with this, read here.

  • Where do I find a link to an online event?

    Check your order confirmation page or order confirmation email.

You might also want to read the event description on Billetto where an event organiser should describe how to join the event online. For more information on this, read here.
