Our e-courses are designed to allow you to develop certain skills before heading out into the mountains. They can be used to compliment existing skills and are a great way to develop your confidence from the comfort of your own home. You may enjoy walks in your local area and may wish to progress this into tackling more challenging hill or mountain walks, but don’t have the experience, time or confidence to tackle them yet. Trying one of our e-courses, such as a navigation course, will allow you to develop some core skills from the comfort of your own home. You can then uses these to progress onto a mountain skills course or to get out and tackle that hill under your own steam.
