This is particularly applicable to the senior members of yacht crews and expedition guides. It is expected that anyone attending Module 4 has full knowledge of Module 1 and Module 2 or 3, and can demonstrate roped glacier travel and crevasse rescue. This module will involve personal coaching depending on the individual's knowledge, ability and prior experience.
