Course Introduction

Do I need training?   Basic expedition training is essential for all participants. Your expedition may encounter bad weather, difficult navigation, tiredness, blisters, emergencies or many other challenges that you must be prepared for. The challenges increase at Silver and Gold level and we must be certain you know what you are doing.

Training is compulsory. If you miss sessions, misbehave or disturb the lesson then you will not be allowed to go on a expedition and this will mean defering to the next expedition.
