Just completed the two day AST1 course with Dave from Alpine Access Australia and was blown away with how it was delivered. The course was mainly theory on the first day and practical the second. Our group ranged in age broadly from 14yrs to early twenties and late 50’s and we all rated this course between 9.5-10 out of 10. I cannot recommend this course enough – it opened my eyes to the dangers in relation to backcountry. Dave also provided an insight into snow science as well as tips when out touring. The education, advice and the delivery was 10/10. Recommend.
