Pre-course skills required to attend the course:
• You will be comfortable/ competent riding unsurfaced tracks (e.g easy Green Lanes) on your bike of your choice.
• You are competent to follow a GPX track provided to you via email/ Bluetooth on a device of your choosing- commonly used: a smart phone/ dedicated GPS like a Garmin Montana.
The Level 2 Course is aimed at people who have previous expereince who can ride and navigate competantly.
Over four days you will learn and be assessed for your Outdoor First Aid qualification and the Level 2 Guides certificate ( OGA) . This course is spread over the four days to accommodate for the short days and the possible poor weather that we may have in March. The four-day courses are often considered the better option because it gives a greater duration to master your new and developing skills.

The Friday and Saturday will be indoors, where we will cover the Guiding framework and the CPR element of the First Aid course. The Sunday will be based at the quarry, developing our First aid incident skills and decision making. The Monday will involve a trail ride and the completion of the guides syllabus.
