Walking Leader Training

Walking Leader Training

The Irish Heart Foundation offers free online 60 minute Walking Leader Training Course, supported by the HSE, aimed at people who wish to lead a voluntary walking group. The training course will give you all the tips and skills you need to lead a safe and enjoyable walk.

Take on the Move More Walking Challenge to help guide your group to meet the current physical activity for health guidelines.  Find a suitable walking route in your area with our Slí na Sláinte route finder and download our range of walking literature and leader supports in the resource section below.

***Please Note: Before committing to the training, it is important to remember that the aim of each course is to have a panel of trained leaders ready to implement their skills in their own communities.***
