Expedition Training

Planning, leadership & skills training

Central to the aim of …all but essential travel… is training for expeditions in the form of courses and workshops. This is achieved through practical outdoor-based expedition courses or theoretical workshops.

Practical expedition courses, such as the 2-day mountain expedition training course, involve specific skills training and advice. Such courses are structured to both increase knowledge and build confidence in the outdoor environment. They are NOT fitness boot-camps. Currently, these courses are run in Snowdonia.

In addition to such courses, expedition workshops offer theoretical leadership and planning advice. Workshops are delivered as 1-day or part-day events. These workshops are sometimes run alongside other events, such as mountain festivals, as well as stand alone workshops. Expedition workshops are delivered regularly and in different locations around the UK.

Finally, bespoke courses are available on request. To arrange a bespoke workshop or course, or to enquire about an alternative date for regular courses, please get in contact.
