  • 1,500 UAE dirhams
  • Jebel Jais Rd

Service Description

So you have been on a couple of Canyoneering days and want to learn more skill and develop your proficiency to become a more proactive and useful team member on your days out. This is the ideal short course to progressively build on your previous experiences and learn the fundamental skills to having a safe day out in the canyons/wadis. This short skills development course is run over a couple of days, (preferably back to back), to enhance the learning and development of skill acquisition. The course will be run in different canyons to build upon awareness and site specific issues that could arise. All the technical equipment will be provided, as well as helmets and harnesses. You will need to bring your usual outdoor/sports clothes, hiking boots, lunch and snacks, water (around 4 litres should do it!), perhaps some form of electrolyte drinks, sunscreen and a back pack to carry it all in. You will also want to have those phones fully charged for all those social media selfies. This short skills course is also the ideal opportunity to build on those skills and experiences in preparation for the RAKTDA approved and Certified - Dry Canyoneering Leader Training Course - the prerequisite for the Assessment Course. Remember, Hajar Mountain Adventures is the ONLY authorised organisation able to deliver Leadership Training and Assessment Courses that are approved by RAKTDA and upon completion, candidates can apply for Adventure Activity Licensing from RAKTDA, the licensing authority.
