MS training is divided into three blocks, MS1, MS2 and MS Assessment. MS1 and MS2 are the basic
training blocks covering all aspects of hillwalking that the candidate will require to become a self sufficient
hill user.

MS1: This course includes map-reading and simple navigation techniques, recognition of natural
features, distance measurement and timing of walks. Mountain hazards are also covered, as is
personal equipment such as correct clothing and emergency equipment.

MS2: This course builds on MS1. It covers the use of a compass, route-planning and the preparation
of route cards, night navigation, scrambling, mountain rescue and emergency procedures.

MS1 and MS2 are generally run over two-day periods and comprise a mixture of indoor informal
lectures/discussions and outdoor practical sessions. The ratio for MS1 and MS2 is one instructor to
six candidates.
