Training Days 

The training day is mandatory training that the participant must complete prior to the expeditions. The training day led my our DofE staff team will be focused on bringing to life expedition skills in a practical hands-on environment. Participants will get to grips with use of the map and compass, first aid scenarios and risk management scenarios. Bring a packed lunch and suitable outdoor clothing and footwear.
