Open Silver Expeditions – Training

At FOTA, we deliver a 2-day training programme with a mixture of classroom and outdoor sessions, covering all the skills needed for Silver expeditions in unfamiliar or remote countryside.

It doesn’t matter whether a Bronze expedition has been completed or not. We cover campcraft, outdoor access, navigation, food, equipment and first aid.

All sessions and our Kit Store are based at The Risk Factory, 20 New Mart Road, Edinburgh, EH14 1RL.

We will meet at The Risk Factory at on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th March, 10:00-16:00 each day.

We can lend you all the specialist equipment for your expeditions – everything from boots and socks, to tents and first aid kits at no extra cost. You still need to supply your own food.

We pride ourselves on helping individual participants form effective teams which support each other. We support each team to plan and achieve their own unique, self-sufficient expedition that truly belongs to them. We can accommodate most additional support needs.

Transport is provided during your training from/to The Risk Factory, Edinburgh.
