The Team members train every Monday evening at various locations, and also, occasionally, once a month on a Sunday. The Training is varied, and encompasses the training guidelines set by the Mountain Rescue Council of England and Wales. We also use different venues for Training purposes, so that it presents a more realistic scenario; as we have no way knowing what the next incident will entail.
Training includes at least one 1st aid, navigation and rope-work session per month. All Team Members are encouraged to help and run training sessions as this benefits all. Whenever possible Team members train with other local Rescue Teams including the Search Dogs, as this promotes good working relations and experience amongst the Teams.
In the winter members have the opportunity to have a trip up to Scotland for training purposes.
It is essential that Team members keep on top of the development of new kit and and advances in technology and techniques. Members are given the chance to attend various courses associated with casualty care, procedures for searching for missing persons, swift-water awareness and mountain rescue.
