Therefore, participants will be able to complete the Silver Expedition section within the following programme:

We are also able to offer the compulsory expedition training for the Silver level, with ‘online’ training sessions, using Microsoft Teams, for the classroom-based topics (undertaken before the ‘open’ week), along with an instructor led navigation training walk on Day 1 of the ‘open’ expedition week, prior to meeting with the other members of your Expedition Team to undertake the route planning, etc. This is at no additional cost.
