Commencing yesterday and all day today, long serving and very experienced team member Ged Clarke, attended the second weekend of a two part / two weekend specialist training course arranged by our national body, Mountain Rescue England and Wales.
The first weekend took place last week, over Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September 2015.
The course was to train regional mountain rescuers with relevant necessary pre course experience in 4×4 driving experience and knowledge, to be 4×4 driver mountain rescue instructors.
The course itself was designed not only to teach 4×4 techniques and awareness, but also more importantly deals with how to pass on this knowledge and instruct others.
Ged Clarke journeyed to Doncaster for the intensive training venue, with AA Drive Tech acting as the training provider, with the course being accredited by ROSPA.
Ged attended alongside other mountain rescuers from across MREW including colleague MPSRO member Simon Thresher from Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team.
An additional report on this very interesting and comprehensive training weekend will be available soon within our website.
