In the summer of 2018, the Snowdonia Society launched a new accredited unit in footpath maintenance. This unit allows you to learn and demonstrate your footpath maintenance skills – and is a useful addition to your CV. This unit is ideal for those who wish to have a more formal way of demonstrating their practical experience.
By undertaking this unit, you will:
- Identify and clear blocked drains and culverts
- Pick up and survey litter
- Check and clean tools before and after use
Paper work is very light, requiring you only to write a short paragraph about your experience.
When can I take part?
This unit takes only a day to complete so it is doable for everyone. Subject to sufficient interest, we currently have the following dates available, which will all be held on Snowdon (although more may be added throughout the year):
- Friday 28th June
- Wednesday 17th July
- Wednesday 28th August

Thanks to our funders Cronfa Partneriaeth Eryri and Waitrose, we can offer this round of training for free. However, places are very limited and if you were to be given a place you would be committing to attending.
