Tim Cain MBE, MedicREC Outdoor First Aid Course (16 hours) – North Yorkshire.
The trainer is a member of the Swaledale Mountain Rescue team, and the courses are the best. In my opinion you would need a good basic knowledge of first aid, before attending one of these courses, as they are quite intense, but for anyone leading groups or doing their Mountain Leaders Certificate, absolutely vital.

Mountain Leader Training
This qualification is aimed at people who wish to lead groups walking in the uplands of the UK, however, I can’t recommend it enough for anyone, who wants to learn the skills for being safe in the mountains. Your navigation skills are paramount! You are required to register. Then prior to taking part in the 6 days training session, you need to have completed 20 quality mountain days.
After the training and before the 5 days assessment, you need to have completed at least 40 quality mountain days, including some of those days wild camping. All the requirements and information can be found in the link.
