Restrictions. This course is open to CFAV’s and Senior Cadets 16 years + from the ACF and CCF. ATC and SCC CFAV bids are welcome on a top up basis only. This is not a course for novices as the candidate does require a combination of some mountaineering and rock climbing experience plus a good head for heights. Candidates must have successfully completed the SMF / BSM and BRC award or have the equivalent experience which must be identified on the CCAT course application.
Course Content. The Basic to Mountain Scrambling (BMS) is a 5 day course. The aim of this course is to introduce students to mountain scrambling on easy to moderate graded scrambles. This is a natural progression in summer mountaineering for any Senior Cadets or CFAVs who have completed the SMF / BSM and/or anyone who is seeking additional log book experience. The content includes clothing, equipment, rope management, belaying, guide book use and route selection. The outcome is for the candidate to be a competent member of a team led by a qualified Mountain Instructor.
Notes. Candidates should be physically fit, free from injury and have a keen interest in adventurous activities. This course may be used towards a gold DofE residential project. Upon successful completion of this course candidates will be issued a CCAT course certificate and brassard badge (cadets only).
