We provide the key skills needed in your “Adventure Toolkit”
Things we can do for you
We help you build a toolkit of skills!
First Aid Toolkit: we use the awarding body ITC to regulate our courses, giving you confidence that the training you are doing is in line with the most up to date HSE guidance. We have spent a long time working on our courses to ensure they build the right skills for when things go wrong, from the wilderness of Scotland to the office place. We have recently started offering blending learning options for first aid – please contact us to discuss this further.
Navigation Workshop: learn how to navigate your way around the mountains whether on bike or foot, from the basics to micro nav we have a simple system to help you learn and use the skill when conditions are difficult.
Resilience and Thrive workshop: Come along to one of our workshops on Thriving through adventure, using our unique model to explore resilience and thriving.
We have listened to our customers and developed a course to build this adventure mindset, one that can help shape a future aligning your vision to your values!
Classroom based and available via online options.
Adventure Day: Let us help you move to the next step when it comes to your adventure ambitions, from local hikes to munro bagging we can help you and your friends/family to see the mountains and learn some skills along the way.
Our team are qualified and professional. Deeply rooted in adventure within their own lives and are either current members of Mountain Rescue in Scotland or from a Fire and Rescue background, our team are competent folk to be around with a massive range of skills and experience to share with you. Between us we have biking, climbing, skiing, hiking and first aid teaching qualifications!
To ensure our First Aid Courses meet stringent national guidelines we use the awarding body ITC and we offer regulated and accredited training to ensure your qualification is recognised by all governing bodies and the HSE.
All of our courses are designed to ensure our customers have:
- A suitable environment for learning the toolkit skills.
- The most up to date and current best practice available.
- An experience which is well managed and at an appropriate level of challenge.
Pre-course we will make sure we have spoken to our customer to discuss their needs to help ensure the training satisfies the learning outcomes they have identified.
Our policies are available on request and reflect the culture of the organisation and the standards we operate by.
OUR SUPPORT IS THE BEST
WE LISTEN to our customers, design courses to meet your needs and deliver. We want you to leave our course knowing you can return to us, ask questions, get follow up training or just phone to talk through a situation which may have occurred relating to your Adventure Toolkit.
