Hill & Mountain Skills Courses

Trigpoint Adventures are an approved provider for Mountain Training Hill & Mountain Skills Courses and deliver these courses in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Hill & Mountain Skills courses are nationally accredited and developed by Mountain Training. The courses are delivered by Mountain Training approved course tutors, who are experienced Mountain Training award holders.

The Hill Skills course is your key to getting started in countryside walking. No previous hill walking experience is required to attend a Hill Skills course because the content of the course is aimed at beginners. If you do have some experience of hill walking but aren’t confident about planning walks, navigating and understanding the equipment required, then the Hill Skills course is an ideal way to learn.

The Mountain Skills course is an ideal choice for walkers interested in transferring their walking skills to steep, remote or more mountainous terrain. Ideally, participants will have some basic hill walking experience and have a reasonable level of fitness. 

These two day courses are non-residential and cost £130 (per person). Their comprehensive syllabus cover:

  • Planning,
  • Walking Skills,
  • Clothing and Equipment,
  • Weather,
  • Navigation,
  • Environmental Knowledge
  • Hazards and Emergency Procedures.
