Mountain Skills 1 and 2

Ever wanted to learn the skills you need to become a competent navigator in the mountains of Ireland and beyond by day, by night or bad weather  ?

As mountain leaders and course providers for Mountaineering Ireland and the UK, we run Mountain Skills 1 and 2 which is a nationally accredited course.

The aim of Mountain Skills 1 and 2 which run over 2 weekends or 4 days, is to help you learn the skills you need to get out hiking; independently, safely, responsibly in the mountains of Ireland, the UK and beyond.

You will learn how to navigate with confidence using a map, a compass and proper equipment in any type of weather condition during day time or night time.
