What to expect at Bronze.
Your training will normally take 2 days, and will cover everything you need to know to be able to successfully complete your expeditions. Following your training you need to complete a 2 day practice expedition, having done this you will be ready for your 2 day final trip.
What to expect at Silver.
If you’ve completed your Bronze Expedition you will know what to expect at Silver. Your training will develop your existing Bronze skills ready for your Practice and Final Expedition’s. At Silver both trips are now 3 days with 2 nights. You can expect to be active for at least 7 hours each day. You may find that your route now take you into slightly more remote areas.
What to expect at Gold.
Having completed your Silver Expedition your skills will already be very good. Gold training will further develop and improve these skills up to the level needed for Gold participants. Both your Practice and Final trips are now for 4 days and 3 nights. You will find you are in Wild Country so the scenery really is wonderful. Gold also gives you the opportunity to have a wild camp if you choose. You can now expect to be active for at least 8 hours each day.
