Mountain Skills will give you the techniques and experience to navigate safely in the mountains and deal with most eventualities, such as thick mist, night navigation, emergencies or exposed ground.
Mountain Skills Courses are recognised by Mountaineering Ireland and delivered by qualified Outdoors Ireland instructors. Our Mountain Skills Courses run in Kerry, Galway and Wicklow.
Mountain Skills 1 is a two day course. Over the two days you will cover map reading, contour features, navigation techniques, mountain hazards, personal equipment, timing and pacing.
At the end of this course you will have a solid and comprehensive introduction to the skills needed to be self sufficient in the mountains. You will also have a good understanding of the overall Mountain Skills Scheme.
