Course Details

International Cultural Module

International cultural module
The International Cultural Module is designed to enable qualified Leaders to transfer their qualification to a different region or country. Currently applying in many European environments, the Cultural Module focuses on the specifics of the region to ensure your understanding and capacities to work
Key Content: 

With the principles of group management, risk evaluation and preparation similar (and transferable) across all countries, the Cultural Module looks specifically at those areas that do require local knowledge:

  • legal factors - roles and responsibilities in that country; limitations that may apply
  • navigation and rights of access
  • weather and local effects, as well as local and CTC (previously OTC) qualification specifications of limits
  • emergency procedures - how the emergency response services operate and what is expected of you
  • communication, the essentials of language and operation

Course outcomes

Course outcomes: 

CTC (previously OTC) has staff based within Europe on a permanent basis, as well as staff with extensive experience of other world regions, hence having an in-depth knowledge of many regions in order to create a range of country-specific Cultural Modules.

Courses are provided throughout Europe during the season, both for the general mountain bike public (open courses) and for companies and organisations (special courses). Where you attend a course based in Europe, it is specific to the country of provision. Moving to a different state means gaining the knowledge provided through a cultural module for that state.
