Chris is looking to become a Hill & Moorland Leader Provider and is currently building up the necessary portfolio to submit the application in August. As part of this process, he was privileged to work alongside Alan Ward of Bigfoot Services on his Hill and Moorland Leader training course and a mighty fine course it was too.
Day 1 – Getting The Basics Right
A day in the Brecon Countryside looking at the fundamental navigation skills, navigational strategies, group management and chatting about the natural environment. A top day out in great company
Day 2 – Journeying In the Hill & Moorland Environment
A day in the Brecon Beacons taking in the summit of Fan y Big looking at efficient movement, emergency procedures and the natural environment.
Day 3 – Applying the Learning
A journey to apply the learning with contour interpretation, hill talks and how to teach navigation. The day was finished off with a debrief and personal action plans.
A very enjoyable course to observe and its always a pleasure working with Alan Ward of Bigfoot Services. Now really looking forward to deliver these courses in the future once my application to become a Provider has been approved – fingers crossed and all that.
