Accreditation courses

With a wealth of expertise under one roof, White Hall Centre is a training and assessment centre for a number of adventurous activities, including mountaineering, climbing, canoeing and orienteering.

Accreditation courses should not be regarded as an introduction to an activity, all require previous course attendance or past experience. You will need to be registered with the relevant governing body:

The following courses are all based at White Hall Centre or a location nearby where transport is provided from the centre. All course prices are per person for the entire course and do not include overnight accommodation. Please bring your own packed lunch, drinks and snacks.
