The team from Whistler Adventure School (WAS), which recently became the only centre in Canada accredited to offer Cytech technical three, is to deliver a series of free sessions in Scotland, some at ACT member shops including Biketrax in Edinburgh and Skyline Cycles in Aberdeen, talking about careers in adventure tourism and the courses delivered at WAS, including Cytech training.
