Training and Skills

To date Ballyhoura Development have assisted us with grant aid for our training courses. We really appreciate this assistance but they have advised that the present grant scheme will finish at the end of Spring 2014. This means in effect that we must run the training courses and apply for the grants before that point.

 Examples of courses we could organise relate to


 • First Aid
 • GPS
 • Mountain Skills 1 and 2
 • Lowland Leader Award
 • Walking Group Leader Award
 • Other eg Radios

 

 More detail of the Mountain Skills, Lowland Leader Award and Walking Group Leader Award are available at the Mountaineering Ireland Site www.mountaineering.ie

 

If you would like us to organise any course or if you would like to discuss in more detail contact Pat Lombard at 085 1743067 or Denis Bates at 086 8047570

 Improvers/Lead Climbing Courses:
 Many climbers find it difficult to make the leap from top roped to lead climbing and although lead climbing can be a more satisfying and enjoyable way of climbing it can also be more dangerous, if done badly. The lead climbing course is especially aimed at climbers that have come through Intro Courses or Discover Climbing Courses but might also suit people that have been taught by friends up to the top roping level, and now want to take it a stage further. These courses take you safely through all aspects of lead climbing on an indoor wall first and then outdoors for the real deal.

 Time Frame: Four x 2-2.5 hour sessions (Indoors and Outdoor Sessions)
 

 Cost: €150 per person/per course.
