Description

The aim of this 3-day course, which takes place in the Bauges massif in Savoie (after the Maurienne valley for the first part), is to prepare you for the probationary examination for the mountain leader state diploma and thus optimise your chances of success.

This module covers the following topics:

  • Preparation for orienteering: training on orienteering routes and navigation strategy (movements).
  • Training for the varied terrain test: techniques for evolving in difficult terrain.
  • Preparation for the interview and the MCQ: strategy and stress management.

Meeting point: La Féclaz in the Bauges massif.

Pre-requisite:

  • To have a personal practice of the discipline, basic knowledge and a personal and professional project.
  • The trainee must be registered for the exam or in the process of taking the exam in the short term.

The advantages of the training:

  • Alternating sessions in the field (orienteering course) and theoretical sessions in the classroom (MCQs, simulated interviews).
  • Individualised follow-up.
  • Experienced trainers.
  • Permanent orientation courses with several circuits.
