Skill Seminars

About

Part of personal recreation and outdoor leadership is a strong technical skill foundation. Adventure WV offers skill courses in variety of disciplines designed to give participants the opportunity to learn and practice the technical aspects inherent to adventure activities. Our courses fall into two categories, Basic Skill Courses and Instructor Courses.

Basic Skill Seminar

Basic Skill Courses are designed to introduce fundamental technical skills. The goal of these courses is to provide the tools necessary for students to initiate the progression toward skill mastery.
