Do you love being outdoors with plenty of fresh air and physical exercise involved? Are you looking to follow an exciting and adventurous career path?Do you want to build on your previous experiences and develop your personal and leadership skills to allow you to safely lead groups in the wadis of the Hajar Mountains of the UAE? The Wadi Tour Guide Award is a RAKTDA accredited scheme, developed and administered by Hajar Mountain Adventures, the ONLY organisation to be given permission to run these RAKTDA certified courses, which would allow license application upon assessment completion. The award is designed to train and assess those who wish to lead groups on day walks in lowland hill territory and wadi walks of the UAE, that are not higher than 600m in height above sea level and require no rope work as part of the day trip. A combination of technical competence, leadership skills and a wide range of experience form the basis of effective group management. The scheme addresses all these elements and will include a minimum of 30 hours contact time. The training course will focus on the skills and knowledge required by those guiding hiking groups. Previous experience and basic competencies in personal hiking fitness and walking on marked paths and tracks in Lowland terrain and Wadi environments not more than 600m above sea level, is required. There should be no requirement to cross any hazardous terrain such as very steep slopes or cliffs (although it must be recognised that some paths in appropriate lowland terrain may be steep and broken). The terrain should be fairly close to access points so that the leader can easily cut short a walk or gain help. As a general rule no point on planned walks should be more than around 3km from an access point such as a car park, lay-by or populated area where assistance or evacuation would be possible. This 4 day intensive training course, or over 2 weekends, is also the perfect preparation course for the Mountain Leader Training and Assessment Course, which will allow you operate in all mountainous terrain of the Hajar Mountains.
