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 set content for this course or the number of days, its your course! If you are planning or have booked an assessment id recommend running through the WML Skills check list on the link below, this will help highlight some of the areas in the Syllabus that you need to cover. If its just 1 of the main areas that you have highlighted ie, Navigation then 1 day may work, if there are more areas you need refreshed, then i'd recommend 2 days. This course may also be helpful as CPD if you are already a WML but havent worked much since passing or you passed the assessment some time ago. This course will be based in and around the Cairngorms. Availability below.
