Expedition Skills Module

The Expedition Skills Module is an optional module available to holders of Lowland Leader or Hill and Moorland Leader awards. It is ideal for those involved with the Duke of Edinburgh Award or who wish to lead groups on overnight camping expeditions. It is a two day course that combines training and assessment with an overnight camp.

The Expedition Skills Module is ideal and/or Ten Tors training (among other things) because the skills covered apply to expeditions using commercial campsites as well as wild camping. You must have logged a minimum of ten overnight camps, ideally in a variety of contexts, two of which must be group camps. You must also have a valid 16-hour first aid certificate, relevant to your work as a walking leader.
