28 May 2018Training for Walk Leaders
A Walk Leader Training day has been confirmed to take place on Wednesday 11 July 2018 from 9.00 to 17.00hrs at Cupar Community Fire Station and booking on eventbright will soon be available.
Several walk leaders have requested navigation training so there will be a meeting with a trained Mountain Leader on 11 June to arrange Navigation Training at Cupar Community Fire Station for up to 6 Ramblers. The course will be 12 hours duration following the NNAS bronze syllabus. The link to course information is - https://nnas.org.uk/national-navigation-award-scheme/bronze-national-navigation-award/.
The training will not involve an examination therefore no certificate will be gained. It will probably be three 4 hourly sessions and no dates or times have been arranged. No charge is being requested for the training but obviously donations for the room hire are needed and may wish also to show appreciation to the trainer. A £20 donation for each venue booking of 4 hours (£60 in total) would be in order. Therefore the cost to each participant would probably be £10 to £15. If members are interested in this we will check to see if any financial help is available from The Ramblers HQ or Area Group. At this early stage of planning the training in September is possible.
