The Mountain Skills Training Programmes are accredited by Mountaineering Ireland and are ideal for anyone wishing to acquire the knowledge and skills to feel safe and confident navigating hills and mountains. MS1 and MS2 are generally run over two-day periods and comprise a mixture of indoor informal lectures/discussions and outdoor practical sessions.
Mountain Skills Two (MS2) is a two day course with an added element of night navigation, hence participants will finish at 10.30pm approx. on the first day. This session covers the use of a compass, route-planning and the preparation of route cards, night navigation, scrambling, mountain rescue and emergency procedures. Please note it is a mandatory prerequisite to have completed MS1 before enrolling for MS2.
