    Stap Leiers Kursus. 27 Augustus 2016.

    'n Stap is net so suksesvol soos die beplanning daarvan. Om 'n stap suksesvol te maak verg fyn beplanning en kennis. 'n Ervare stapleier is essensieel vir 'n suksesvolle stap, veral as daar iets verkeerd gaan. Almal wil graag 'n stap geniet, maar die stapleier moet seker maak dat die groep veilig is, die tye goed uitgewerk is, kaarte en lokale kennis met almal gedeel word. So kan elkeen die stap geniet.

    Hierdie kursus dek elemente soos beplan en organiseer, toerusting en kos, gevare en veiligheid, kaarte en roete lees. Hiking SA het al die kursus 'n paar keer aangebied.

    18 Persone het die afrikaanse kursus bygewoon wat deur Louis van der Westhuizen aangebied is.
    Natasha le Roux, Annalie de Bruyn, Toppie Swanepoel, Annette Odendaal, Dave Hale, Wilma Hale, Kobus Basson, Yolande Routenbach, Ada Venter, Renate Niemann, Corrie Niemann, Ronelle de Lange, Francois Siebrits, Kenau Siebrits, Doreth Kruger, Manya van der Burgh, Lucas Janse van Rensburg en Sarisha Griesel.

    Hike Leaders' Course. 27 Augustus 2016

    Itís often been said that enjoying a hike is increased by the presence of a leader. Not just someone who knows the way, but someone who applies safety, best practices, fun, local knowledge and the ability to work with his or her group to make a successful outing.

    The course covers areas like planning, organising, equipment and food, dangers and safety, maps and navigation and aspects of how to lead a group. We have offered this course a few times in the past with great success.

    The english course was presented by John Mehliss.
    Mark Eifler, Kim Donelly, Jan Bosse, Ryan De Haast, Anthony Rockliffe, Latchezar Malinov, Francois van Jaarsveld, Byron Tyers, Richard Brown, Antoinette Morgan, Ruth Schmidt, Alex Elshove, Stuart Simpson, Peter Sekgothe, Leizel Kriel, Elana de Jager, Kingsley Graig Rowland, Fiona de Sousa, Phumla Ngweya, Ralph Enslin and Anso Kropff had attended the course.

    Attending a GFA audit course/ bywoning van 'n GFA oudit kursus.
    Friday 19 June (9:00) - Sunday 21 June 2015 at Windy Brow, near Cullinan.

    Uitnodiging om kurus vir sertifisering as Groenvlag ouditeurs by te woon

    The Green Flag auditing of hiking trails has been growing steadily during the past 12 months. At this stage all the major trail-providing organizations have in principle committed to the system: SANParks, Cape Nature, KZN-Ezemvelo, SAFCOL (KLF, Cape Pine) and some of the Provincial governments and main urban municipalities, as well as the Swaziland Tourism Authority. Interest from private landowners is also growing but much work is to be done in marketing the concept to this group. Now is thus an appropriate time to hold another training course to equip more certified auditors. It is also required of all existing certified auditors to do refreshment courses at least every two years in order to ensure that we all adhere to the same standards and assessment procedures. The next course will be held at the Windy Brow, near Cullinan from Friday 19 June (9:00) - Sunday 21 June 2015.
