WML Refresher  

I have over a decade of experience working in the Scottish winter mountains, including over this period numerous Winter Mountain Leader training and assessment courses for various providers. There is no real set content for this course, it is your course! If you are planning or have booked an assessment i would recommend running through the Winter Mountain Leader Skills check list on the link below, this will help highlight some of the areas in the Syllabus that you may need to refresh. This is a 2 day course which enables candidates to refresh on possibly some of the main areas in the syllabus, Navigation & Security on Steep Ground as well as a chance to ask questions with regards to the assessment process and gain top tips. This course may also be helpful as CPD if you are already a WML but have not worked much since passing or you passed the assessment some time ago. This course will be based in and around the Cairngorms.
